  1. Transgender couple wed in Hungary amid LGBT hostility

  2. Elvira Angyal and Tamara Csillag prepare for their wedding at home. In the world of nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban, this was special as Orban, increasingly hostile to LGBTQ people, has outlawed legal recognition of transgender identity.

  4. "Our dream has come true. We are so happy to have received an official seal on our relationship," Angyal said after the ceremony at city hall, holding hands with her new wife. She kissed her and said: "I love you.

  5. Theirs was far from a smooth journey. Both had families as men before coming out to live as women. Of seven children between them, only one, Angyal's son Patrik, was present.

  6. Elvira Angyal prepares for her wedding at home. Rights groups say Orban and his political allies, the small Christian Democratic party KDNP, have targeted the gay community since he won a third term in 2018.

  7. Elvira Angyal and her son Patrik prepare for the wedding at home. The wedding came one day after Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen renewed homophobic attacks with a proposal to enshrine in the country's constitution a ban on "gender propaganda.

  8. Tamara Csillag prepares for her wedding at home. Csillag said she was confident enough for such legal moves and propaganda not to shake her. "What harms children is what the government does," she said.
