During a session on bullying, Prince
William spoke out against homophobia.
According to the Daily
England's future king participated in an event on bullying and
cyberbullying with students from Hammersmith Academy in West London.
In one exercise, he was asked how he
would react to homophobic bullying. Prince William said that he
would confront the abuser after comforting the victim.
“I would try to confront, to tackle
the person. I usually find myself right in the middle of problems,
so that's pretty much where I'd be,” he said during an hour-long
training session on LGBT bullying.
Tom, a former student, said: “It was
great to have his support. To have somebody of that stature and that
high up, speaking up against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.”
“It's something that must be really
deeply rooted in his want for justice and for everybody to be equal.
It's just amazing to see someone from royalty stand up and say this,”
