BBB Info: No Fairy Tale of a Gay Maharajah

Once upon a time there was a gay maharajah in India...

When we think of India, we thing of wild hippie parties, Kamasutra, Tantra. The real India is very prudish. Homosexuality remains a big taboo in Indian society and sex between people of the same gender is still punishable by law, since 1861.

Famous example is maharajah Manvendra Singh Gohil. Born in 1965, he married 1991, got divorced short after and had his gay coming out 2006. His family was not amused and disinherited him. Since then he is the Gay Maharajah.

Manvendra didn‘t have anything to loose any more and started to fight for gay rights and AIDS education.

Now the only openly gay maharajah hits the international headlines again. He has opened his palace and the 60,000 square metre area around for hunted gay fellow men. Also transsexuals and other victims discriminated for their sexuality find here a new home and financial support, if needed.

He established the Lakshya Trust to fund these activities. Fund raising campaigns provide further capital.

Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil told the press: “People still face a lot of pressure from their families when they come out, being forced to marry, or thrown out of their homes. They often have nowhere to go, no means to support themselves.”

Manvendra’s high profile has helped the LGBT community in India enormously. Now homosexuality is visibly to society, it is discussed in big media and truly present in new productions from Bollywood.

We certainly hope, that for the estimated 130 millions Indian gays, the big taboo will become history and they can enjoy sexual freedom like the people of Thailand.

BBB Inn is not a palace of course. But our doors are open for gays from all over the world. If you need a shelter, click here:

… and they live happily ever after.
