LGBTQ+-Roma in Hungary face multiple discrimination due to multiple identities such as ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation. It is an issue that has not been received sufficient attention in the society and media.

Our goals with the Roma-LGBTQ+ float are:

– to support Roma people, who are fighting with their identity as being ’different’. As a Roma, it can be harder to reach the self-acceptance because of the fear of unknown (lack of information about homosexuality) and by the prejudices they already bear.

– to empower them to accept their identity, or even to come out of the closet.

– raising awareness of Roma and non-Roma communities to the importance of acceptance vis-à-vis the LGBTQ+ community.

– to show that Roma and non-Roma can work together on issues like equality.

– to commemorate Milán Rózsa, the LGBT and human rights activist’s crucial work in Hungary. (♥)

Everybody is welcome to join the float, independently from racial, sexual and other background!
