(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 24 - Thousands of people are expected to participate today at the Budapest Gay Pride, the event that will close the month of LGBT pride in Hungary and which will be a demonstration of protest against the anti-gay policies of the Viktor government Orban.


    The country's LGBT community organizations expect to see far more attendees today than the approximately 20,000 protesters who attended the last city Pride march two years ago.


    The demonstration will openly challenge the escalation of the Orban government's anti-gay rights campaign. Earlier this month, a law went into effect in the country banning children from representing LGBT themes, with huge implications for education, art and entertainment.


    On Wednesday, Orbán also announced a referendum with five questions to ask Hungarians if they want their Fijians "protected" from LGBT content. (HANDLE).
