Prince William Makes History As He Grace Cover Of LGBT Magazine, ‘Attitude’

PRINCE WILLAM-GAY MAG-1Prince William has become the first royal to feature on the front of a gay magazine.

His Royal Highness appeared as this month’s cover star of Attitude, a lifestyle magazine for the LGBT community, as he spoke out against homophobic bullying.

The colour cover shot, taken by photographer Leigh Keily, shows a relaxed William in an open-necked white shirt, laughing as he rests his chin on his left hand.

In an interview to go with the cover shoot, he hits out at bullies who target the gay community, saying:

‘No one should be bullied for their sexuality.’

His Royal Highness met with nine members of the LGBT community at Kensington Palace (pictured) to discuss bullying and the mental health implicationsHe then called on young people being bullied for their sexuality to seek help.

The Duke revealed yesterday that would be appearing in Attitude after signing a book of condolence for victims of the gay nightclub shooting in Orlando which left 49 people dead and dozens of others wounded.

He said:

‘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.

‘What I would say to any young person reading this who’s being bullied for their sexuality: don’t put up with it.

Attitude was founded in 1994 and is the UK’s biggest-selling gay magazine with a circulation of around 60,000 issues per month, including digital.
