Launched by the Humen Travel Tourism Association, the Pink Budapest Project has released its second LGBTQ image video with the purpose of increasing Budapest’s popularity among gay tourists all around the world.

It is important for the more than twenty members of the association to provide visitors with amazing experiences to maintain a stellar reputation and attract even more travelers. That is why an annual image film is needed, which seeks to increase interest in the city by appearing on various platforms intended for the target group.
