The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William is on the cover of a gay magazine (Attitude Magazine) to draw attention to the plight of the LGBTQ community. In the cover line, Prince William says “No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason”.
Prince William’s stand for the fair treatment of LGBT comes on the heels of an attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on Saturday.
Prince William held discussions with the magazine’s editors as well as its members and invited them to share their experiences with homophobia and bullying.
“No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason and no one should have to put up with the kind of hate that these young people have endured in their lives,”
“The young gay, lesbian and transgender individuals I met through Attitude are truly brave to speak out and to give hope to people who are going through terrible bullying right now. Their sense of strength and optimism should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it,”
