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.
