Among others, LMP co-leader and MP Péter Ungár, WhisperTon and Péter Árvai, founder of Hungary’s world-success Prezi, were among the invitees.
But, based on the photos, several leading politicians, influencers, and businessmen attended the dinner organised at the Embassy of the United States. For example, Richárd Barabás, the deputy mayor of Budapest’s 11th district, and Tibor Kocsis, a famous Hungarian singer, were also among the decision-makers invited. David Pressman wrote: “As we enter a season of celebration of the LGBT community, we recognise those working to advance the visibility, equality, and human rights of all Hungarians. Daniel and I enjoyed gathering a diverse group around our dinner table for an interesting and informative discussion.”

Government: Approval of migrant distribution plan ‘shows worst side of Brussels politics’
The adoption of a position on the distribution of migrants by European Union interior ministers has shown “the worst side of Brussels politics”, a cabinet parliamentary state secretary said on Friday. In contrast to the EU’s previous plan for migrant distribution quotas, the new version would require member states that refuse to accommodate migrants to pay an equivalent of HUF 8 million (EUR 22,000) per migrant, Csaba Dömötör said in a video posted on Facebook. “They call this a contribution, but it’s actually a multi-million fine,” he added.
The proposal would regulate the distribution of asylum procedure capacities, with Hungary being required to perform 28 percent of all border procedures, Dömötör said. “The majority of such procedures would not have to be performed by Greece or by Italy, but us,” he added. “This week’s development shows the worst side of Brussels politics, because they’re making decisions at the expense of our future over our heads, depriving us of the right to decide whom we want to live with,” the state secretary said, adding that the Hungarian government did not support this. “There will be more talks coming, and we’re ready for the debates,” Dömötör said. “We can’t let them force this plan on us.”
