Prince Admits He’s Gay!

Posted by on July 7 at 11:35 AM

Not this Prince, who’s been linked with more hot women than you’ve wanked over in Swank (including her, her, and, before she went plural, her.)

No, the prince who’s come trotting out of the closet is India’s Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, a member of one of the country’s richest royal families, who publicly announced his homosexuality last month, in defiance of India’s 145-year-old law forbidding any and all same-sex sex.

Following his announcement, the 40-year-old Prince Manvendra was not only disowned by his family, he had the pleasure of reading of his fate through a “disinheritance notice” placed by his parents in an Indian newspaper. “Henceforth, no one must refer to my name as mother of Manvendra,” read one notice signed by the prince’s mother. “If any individual or organization dares to do so, it will invite contempt proceedings.”

Despite the hideously public rejection, Prince Manvendra seems to be doing well, telling Reuters that he’s found happiness among the gay community in the western state of Gujarat, and is not interested in his vast, lost inheritance.

Good for him. Full story here.

Holy S! That has to be the record for "most to lose by coming out."

For a minute there I thought it might be this prince.


Takes bigtime balls.

Somehow I suspect he'd been feathering his nest for some time before the expected disinheritance.

He isn't gonna be doing badly.

...Unless they burn him alive.

I wanted it to be "Black Sweat" Prince, but damn!

I have been reading a lot about how American queers are seen by non-American queers and whew -- we are stinkers. We talk about coming out and being free and all that rot, but we have no balls. We are still needing to be accepted by str8 folks and scared of each other to boot...

Bravo. This Prince -- he is my hero.
