India’s first openly gay prince, Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, was spotted celebrating World Pride in New York, United States.
India is a country where last year in September, the Supreme Court decriminalized homosexuality and partially struck down Section 377 that banned consensual gay sex.
Manvendra has been an LGBTQ rights activist in India and was the keynote speaker of WorldPride’s Human Rights Conference as per reports.
Wold Pride is an event organised to celebrate and promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT pride) issues on an international platform through parades, festivals, and other cultural activities.
In 2019, WorldPride as we mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and a half-century of LGBTQIA+ liberation.
The New York City has been a major Pride destination for several years.
