Gábor Szetey on homophobia in Hungary

Hungarian Secretary of State Gábor Szetey has become the first Hungarian politician to publicly announce his homosexuality - in a speech delivered at the Gay Festival in Budapest. The press is calling Szetey (39) a hero. However, the festival came to a violent end. Right-wing extremists attacked demonstrators at the gay parade. In an interview with Szilvia Szilágyi, Szetey comments. "There is a small but vocal group of right-wing extremists which is intent on offending everyone... According to a survey, 51 percent of the respondents thought my speech was courageous and that it would improve the situation for homosexuals. It's strange that the Conservatives, who attach such great importance to neighbouring states giving their Hungarian minorities equal rights, couldn't care less about equal rights in their own country."
