Speaking against homophobia and to show support for the LGBT community, Britain’s Prince William is all set to appear on the cover of the July edition of a gay magazine called ‘Attitude’.
This would be the first time that a British royal family member would appear on the cover of a gay publication.
The second-in-line to the throne discussing the mental health implications of homophobic, bi-phobic and transphobic bullyings.
The cover photo shows a picture of grinning Prince William with headline “Making History”, next to his face. There is also a quote provided by him which appears on the cover and said “No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason”.
The said magazine generally features athletes, models and other stars under their main logo.
The magazine also revealed that the prince had posed for the cover shot after meeting their editor and a group of gay and transgender people at London’s Kensington Palace.
Back in 2013, Prince William’s younger Brother Prince Harry had won a praise for saving a soldier in his regiment from a gay hate attack.
Williams has been quoted urging people to report anyone who targets them for their sexuality.
According to BBC, he invited the magazine to bring members of the LGBT community to Kensington Palace so as to discuss bullying and its mental health repercussions and was “moved” by what he heard.
He then went on to say that “no-one should have to put up with this kind of hate” and urged them to not “
put up with it” and speak to a trusted adult, friend or teacher.
He went on to add “You should be proud of the person you are and you have nothing to be ashamed of.”
William, along with the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, is leading the Heads Together campaign, which aims to end stigma around mental health. The news about Prince William supporting LGBT community comes in just days after 50 people were killed
at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
Attitude, is UK’s “best-selling gay magazine” and their July edition is set to go on sale from June 22. They had gone to press before Orlando nightclub shooting took place.
