Police Ban  Gay Parade, Blame Budapest Traffic
"Police have cancelled the annual gay parade, which had been scheduled for June 18, citing a disproportionate disruption of traffic. Organiser the Rainbow Mission Foundation (SZMA) had last week applied for an extension to its usual downtown route, which police had already accepted, SZMA head Sándor Steigler explained.

The extension would have taken the march in front of parliament, where marchers planned to protest the Fidesz media law and the upcoming new Constitution, both of which are perceived as anti-gay rights, he said.
“It is difficult not to classify the police move as a political decision,” Steigler added.

The SZMA said it will appeal the decision in court, member Márta Sánta told MTI on Monday. Politics Can Be Different (LMP) condemned the ban. Some 1,000 people took part in the event last July."
