Move Over Aladdin, We Got a New Gay Prince – and He’s Single and Ready to Mingle!

THE SHOT – For its transformation issue, V magazine profiled Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, the first openly gay prince to come out of India. In his first visit to New York since 1974, the prince flew for the photoshoot and to talk about his HIV/AIDS work.

“America is fascinated by royalty more than other parts of the world and perhaps because this country has never witnessed the excesses of monarchy,” he tells V. “It’s like a fairy tale.” The single prince also opens up about searching for love. So get in line, guys, and hope the glass slipper fits.

    I think its pretty cool that he has come out, especially since he is from a country that still has HUGE issues about being gay!

    Best of luck to him and much hope for success in his quest for love!

    @nowliveit: You’re right, I meant to say it’s his first visit to NYC since 1974.

    There are gay Indians???????

  • Raphael

    someone needs their skin airbrushed…

    Good for him, there was a huge controversy in India just a year or so ago about a movie depicting two gay men, so congrats to the prince for being brave enough to come out publiclly.

  • Ian Awesome

    he came out a few years ago and has been trolling for peen ever since. I need a tiara, maybe then I can get a date too.

    I love this prince. He was on Oprah & he was articulate, self-effacing, & gaining acceptance with his people as he pulled back the curtain on a lot of subjects Indians would prefer to ignore.

    He’s a very good guy.

    He also continues to live in the palace w/ his mom who hasn’t acknowledged him for years. The quite literally pass in the hallway & don’t speak.

    Mother in Law from hell, still… I’d be a (real) princess!

    Besides, we need another “royal wedding” after the boring nuptuals of Prince Albert of Monaco & that lovely but pitiable woman from South Africa who got stuck marrying him — and dealing with his ever-expanding brood of illegitimate kids.

    At least the future consort of Prince Gohil won’t have to worry about hidden babymommas to contend with!

  • Sebizzar

    @Jeffree: LoL agreed. If this prince ever does marry, THAT will be a wedding to look forward to :D

    @Ian Awesome: With that attitude? Unlikely. Why do you need to use such negative language? Do we need to be spiteful all the time? I hope the price finds love, I truly wish him all the best because he seems like a fantastic man.

    @gaygayerson6969669696969: Of course. It’s not like they’re Iranians for cryin’ out loud!

    @Oscar Raymundo: According to the V magazine article linked here, you are two years off:

    “Gohil arrived at Klein’s studio after a whirlwind tour of New York—his first since 1976, when he was just a boy […]”

    If i am ever with any prince he is definitely going to have to treat me like his queen. End of discussion. keep the baggage. More trouble than it can possibly be worth.

  • ewe

    But then again they say love has no boundaries.
