Prince William is the 1st royal to feature on gay magazine cover

15willsLondon:; Prince William has become the first royal to feature on the front of a gay magazine.

His Royal Highness is this month’s cover star of Attitude magazine, a lifestyle magazine for the LGBT community.

In a meeting arranged by the publication, the Duke of Cambridge met with nine members of the LGBT community at Kensington Palace to discuss bullying and the mental health implications.

Speaking to Attitude, William said that noone should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reasons.

‘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.
