Updated on 7 September, 2017 at 2:56 pm By

Do you remember Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil? If not, then you must read this.

Prince Manvendra is the first and only prince in modern India who is openly gay. In 2006, he made a public announcement about his sexuality. After the announcement,  his father refused to accept his homosexuality, and his mother, the Queen, took out an ad in the newspaper to publicly disown her only son.

Still, Prince Manvendra, who hails from India’s oldest royal family, remained determined to live in his truth, reports Huffington Post.

 

To raise awareness about India’s anti-gay laws, Prince Manvendra launched a grassroots campaign called ‘Free Gay India’ in 2014. He said:

“The Free Gay India campaign is aimed at the law, which is criminalizing the homosexual population in India. We would like to connect more and more people into it.”



 

Prince Manvendra appeared on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ many times, and shared his journey, his fight and need to raise awareness about homosexuality in India.
