  • You are cordially invited to the semester's first Alumni Speaker Event of the U.S. Embassy and the American Corner Budapest on Tuesday, February 21, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at the PREZI House of Ideas.

To mark LGBT History Month celebrated in February across Hungary, TAMÁS DOMBOS (International Visitor Leadership Program) will provide an introduction to the social and legal situation of LGBT people in Hungary, focusing on how various public discourses shape social attitudes towards this minority. The other speaker, ANNA SZLÁVI (Fulbright) will be discussing how media, especially advertising, portrays LGBT people in Hungary and how their misrepresentation contributes to the community's (in)visibility. She will then go on to show that, on the contrary, community art, especially mural projects, can strengthen both LGBT identity and visibility. :: RSVP required via email by February 20th, 2017 to <KovacsV@state.gov>
