Budapest Gay Pride Parade Draws Record Crowd
Eight thousand people joined the annual Gay Pride parade in Budapest on Saturday, organizers said, marking the biggest participation in the event's 16-year history.
The parade, which in recent years has been disrupted by far-right protesters, took place without any violent incidents, although about 200 far-right nationalists shouted insults at participants.
More than 400 companies and organisations signed a statement in support of the parade in the run-up to the event.
Representatives from 20 foreign embassies and several opposition party politicians also took part in the parade.
