Gay Prince Comes out of Closet; Dispossessed

 

The heir to a wealthy royal family in India, Prince Manvendrasinh Gohil has been disowned by his family for telling them he's gay. He told his parents in 2002 after suffering from a nervous breakdown, and his decision to go public was the last straw.

Suspecting he was different as a teen, he didn't tell anyone until he told his prearranged wife of one year. He said, "I knew that they would never accept me for who I truly am. But I also knew that I could no longer live a lie."

Old British laws prohibiting homosexual relations in India are still valid there, with an unsuccessful attempt last year at changing them. Critics say police abuse the laws by blackmailing gays, and that they hamper efforts to combat HIV/AIDS.

  Stay in the closet  
 
Why would someone come out out of the closet and risk all the family fortune. Hey, I would stay in the closet, and stay rich enough to pay for all the "pretty boys" I want.

"He told his parents in 2002 after suffering from a nervous breakdown, and his decision to go public was the last straw."

AFTER a neverous breakdown... he was in a situation were he couldn't take the pressure (of the lie) anymore.

Disturbing viewpoint.

The prince has exposed the sham marriage and atleast a future gay partner will know he has an upfront partner.

It's the family's loss for choosing money and status over their son.
