Prince Williams Makes History With 'Attitude' Magazine Cover

Prince William is all smiles on the history-making July 2016 cover of Attitude magazine!

The 33-year-old royal is the first of any member of the Royal Family to be photographed for the cover of a gay publication.

William met with members of the LGBT community and listened to their experiences of homophobic, bi-phobic, and transphobic bullying, as well as discussed the subsequent mental health implications.

“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,” William 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.”

He continued, “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 – speak to a trusted adult, a friend, a teacher, Childline, Diana Award or some other service and get the help you need. You should be proud of the person you are and you have nothing to be ashamed of.”
