India's first openly gay prince, Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, was spotted in New York on Thursday celebrating WorldPride.
Prince Gohil was the keynote speaker of WorldPride's Human Rights Conference, Page six reported.
He has been a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) rights activist in India. In September 2018, Supreme Court decriminalized homosexuality. The top court overruled the 2013 decision and partially struck down Section 377 that banned consensual gay sex.
WorldPride 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.
New York City, which is playing host to this year's WorldPride, has always been a major Pride destination for several years. CNN, however, reported that this year's celebration is expected to draw record crowds.
