Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, of Rajpipla in Gujarat, is India's first openly gay prince and a leading LGBT rights activist. 

He recently spoke to ComeOut Loud about growing up with servants and a governess and his confusion about his sexuality growing up in a conservative, royal household. 

He narrates his story, often with an audible catch in his voice, and expresses just how important it is to be true to yourself and the struggles he had to go through, both internal and external, because of his sexuality.
