Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil marries a man and plans to adopt

Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil got married to recording artist Ivan Wilzig over the weekend, in the Hamptons. In 2008, the prince announced plans to adopt a child. If he does, he will reportedly be the first gay man to adopt a child in India. Gohil’s family unsuccessfully attempted to disinherit him after he came out of the closet in ’06 and, in ’07, appeared on an episode of Oprah Winfrey’s talk show entitled “Gay Around the World.” As a wedding gift, Wilzig, presented the 45-year-old prince with a check for $5,000 that was made out to the royal’s charity, the Laksyha Trust, which raises awareness about gay rights and HIV/AIDS prevention for gay men. Unlike his struggles in India, Gohil told us “Americans are always very loving to me.”
