Comment by Kevin who visited in June 2006: My friend David and I did the Budapest Gay Pride 2006. It was a fantastic event, with lots of atmospere and friendly people on the march and along the route. The party at Buddha Beach afterwards was amazing, the atmosphere was incredible.
- Julie wrote in June 2008: I live in Budapest and was in the Gay pride last year. Unfortunately the political situation in the country is quite bad since November 2006. Very right wing is louder and louder. There was trouble during the 2007 gay pride, few attacks against gay, eggs, bottles and sometimes stones were thrown. It's not as bad as Poland and the party after parade is really good, but if you walk into the parade, expect some crazy on the way.
