During the visit, William revealed he will appear in an upcoming edition of Attitude, a British gay lifestyle magazine.
“I told him what I do and he said he’s going to be in Attitude magazine,” GLIFAA president Craig Petty revealed after the meeting. “I think it’s great that they have come here today to show their support.”
A source at the magazine confirmed the news.
“It’s all very exciting,” the insider said. “For the duke to have mentioned it today is really nice to know. It’s been set up for months.”
