On 11 August 2007 ILGA-Europe took part in Tallinn Pride under the theme of "All Different, All Equal"
On 6-7 July 2007, ILGA-Europe held Strategic Planning meeting in Budapest which coincided with the Budapest Pride. We were invited to address and participate at the pride March. This was the 11th Pride March in Budapest, but for the first time it was not entirely peaceful: there were nationalistic protesters following the March almost during its entire route, shouting insults, throwing eggs and stones into marchers, there was even a smoke bomb thrown at the marchers. It is known that at least 8 protesters were arrested on that day. Unfortunately there were also a few cases when LGBT individuals were attacked and beaten up later on that day.
On 11-13 May 2007, members of the Executive Board of ILGA-Europe had their meeting in Brussels and freed a few hours to join Brussels Pride March which took at the same time to support LGBT community in Belgium and to raise profile of the organisation and its work.
Days before the European Council meeting, many social European NGOs, including ILGA-Europe, gathered in Brussels to demand that the Council keeps social provisions and the Fundamental Rights Charter as part of the European Treaty.
Despite the rain and two bombs explosions the night before the march, nearly 500,000 people marched thought central London
