“Stand up to #LGBT+ #Homophobia and #Bullying Wherever We See It”

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

Few days post the #OrlandoMassacre, the “Attitude” released today a brief insight about Prince William’s conversations regarding #homophobia and #bullying among #LGBT+, a historical moment as the first Royal who posed as a cover of the UK’s leading online LGBT focused magazine.

“The young gay, lesbian and transgender individuals I met through Attitude are truly brave to speak out and to give hope to people who are going through terrible bullying right now.

Their sense of strength and optimism should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it.” – HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge

HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge met with Attitude for a discussion with a group of LGBT+ people to listen to their experiences of bullying and homophobia and the consequences these had on their mental health. (source: Attitude.co.uk)

“He put us all at ease despite the fact that we were talking about some intense and sometimes harrowing things. One of those was a mother, Mena Houghton, whose son Mark Houghton died in 2010 at age 27 from an unintentional overdose after years of being homophobically bullied at school. He was great with her and with all of us.” –  said Matthew Todd, Editor, Attitude (source: People)
