Indian gay prince turns palace into shelter for LGBTs

Manvendra Singh Gohil, the gay Indian prince since 2006, has opened his palace for homeless LGBTs in the country or in a vulnerable situation. The action should be even greater with the construction of three more buildings with the same intention.

In India, homosexuality is considered crime and Manvendra faces since assuming his condition bias and challenges across country.

“I want to offer social and financial empowerment to LGBTs, so they are able to get out of the closet,” he said.
