I am Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, Chairperson and Co-founder of Lakshya Trust, the first organization in Gujarat to work on HIV prevention among MSM (Men having sex with Men) and the transgender population. www.lakshya-trust.org
I am the first member of a royal family to openly come out as gay in March of 2006 which sent shock waves all over the world. I am the third Indian to be invited by Oprah Winfrey to Chicago for the show “Gays around the World” in November 2007 and the only Indian to be invited for the 2nd time for her farewell season in Jan 2011.
I have traveled extensively to give lectures and create awareness about homosexuality and HIV/AIDS to countries around the world like USA, Sweden, Brazil, UK, Holland, France, Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Sri Lanka, Hongkong, etc.
We are proud to help establish Broadway to Bombay and I am happy to advise on the LGBTQI culture and climate here in India and the issues that Broadway to Bombay wants to address.
I am Married to Deandre Duke of Hanumanteshwar since March of 2013.

"Hello, I am Deandre, the Duke of Hanumanteshwar. Who I am is the URGC Ambassador USA-IND; Dr of Religious Science; Orical card reader and spiritual guide. I am a Peace keeper. I am much involved with Human Rights and LGBT rights.

Project Producer and Workshop Leader
I am Mykel, an entertainment professional of over 20 years and a master teacher in the flagging arts. I own and run Eec Productions and have always been passionate about helping other people. As I have seen my flagging workshop Flow and Flair grow and serve people who are trapped in their bodies, I intuitively knew this would be a project to help free people from their minds. On completing a six year journey from overcoming a hate crime, I know far too well what it's like to not feel accepted. I am proud of this project and the team who is its foundation.
