While attending Saturday’s (24 July) Budapest Pride March, Irish MEP Maria Walsh opened up about the archaic anti-LGBTQ+ law stating: “Enough has to be enough”. “We can’t keep just talking about the buzzword of solidarity without actually implementing it in the rooms and around the tables that matter the most,” she told Sky News.  “Orbán, he’s just starting.

He’s built a foundation that he can stand on and now we’re going to start seeing more and more rollbacks of rights, and then how can I wear a European mask or flag and say ‘Everybody’s equal’, because that’s not the case.”  Walsh was one of the thousands of LGBTQ+ activists and allies that lined the streets of Hungary’s capital to protest the growing anti-LGBTQ+ presence in the country.
