Prince William Speaks Out Against Anti-Gay Bullying

Prince William

Prince William has spoken out against anti-gay bullying as he accepted an award for his support of the LGBTI community.

The Duke of Cambridge was named ‘Straight Ally of the Year’ at the British LGBT Awards on Friday evening. He was one of several celebrities who took home awards.

In a video message played at the ceremony, William said: “In recent years I’ve become passionate about what we can do to protect people from bullying, particularly online.

“I have encountered a number of tragic stories about LGBT young people who have sadly felt unable to cope with the abuse and discrimination they face in their lives.

“But this work has also led me to a number of inspiring people who are helping others to stand up to bullying, wherever it occurs.

“It is 2017, and nobody should be bullied for their sexuality, or for any other reason.

“It’s so important to be proud of the person you are. I am very proud to receive this ally award.”

Last year, Prince William appeared on the cover of British LGBTI magazine Attitude last year, a first for the royal family.

Prince William also recently teamed up with Lady Gaga and discussed Gaga’s PTSD in an online video in a bid to end the “shame” of talking about mental health.
