Thousands of Hungarians joined the annual Budapest Pride march to support LGBTQ people and protest against a law that limits teaching about homosexuality and transgender issues in schools.
Hungary's nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban, in power since 2010, has introduced social policies that he says aim to safeguard traditional Christian values from Western liberalism.
Organizers said in a statement the rally was against "power-hungry politicians" who used laws to make members of the LGBTQ community, quote, "outcasts in their own country".
Orban's law, which came into force this month, has stoked tensions with the European Union, which has launched legal action against the government.
