AceShowbiz - %cPrince William% makes a statement after the mass shooting at the Orlando gay nightclub, Pulse. He graces the front page of Attitude's latest issue, becoming the first royal to appear on the cover of LGBT magazine. He also met with victims of homophobic bullying at the Kensington Palace.
"No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason and no one should have to put up with the kind of hate that these young people have endured in their lives," says the Duke of Cambridge who has been campaigning to raise awareness about mental health issues.
"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," the father of two adds, praising "their sense of strength and optimism" which "should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it. You should be proud of the person you are and you have nothing to be ashamed of."
Earlier this week, Prince William and his wife %cKate Middleton% signed a book of condolence at the U.S. Embassy in London to pay respect to the victims of Orlando shooting.
