Budapest mayor opposes city’s Gay Olympics next year
By Hungary Around the Clock

Mayor István Tarlós cannot support the Gay Olympics [sic] scheduled to take place in Budapest next June, as the idea is alien to his thinking, according to a statement posted Wednesday on the official Budapest website.

Berlin mayor Klaus Wowereit, who is openly gay, reminded Tarlós in a letter that the gay games [sic] are not only a sporting event but also promote the acceptance of homosexuals.

Former mayor Gábor Demszky supports the event, but Tarlós has made it clear that he distances himself from the gay lifestyles and the event itself.
