Prince William Publicly Condemns Homophobia

Prince William has become first member of the British royal family to publicly condemn homophobia and LGBT bullying.

The prince visited Hammersmith Academy to take part in a session with pupils on how to prevent LGBT bullying, and cyber bullying. During the session, the future King made his views on bullying as a result of sexual orientation clear.

He told students: “I would start on that side [comfort the victim and end up here [confront the bully],” while referring to a chart that was used to describe approaches to combating bullying, Pink News reported.

William attended the workshop as part of his work with the Diana Award – a charity named after his late mother, Princess Diana.

He becomes the first royal to discuss LGBT issues. Although same-sex marriage is legal in all parts of the U.K. except Northern Ireland, not even the Queen has directly mentioned the subject.
