SPAIN: King Poses For Gay Magazine

Spain’s King Felipe VI, 46, has posed for the cover of a local gay magazine as a show of support for the LGBT community. According to Latin Gossip, this is the first time that a “high-ranking Spanish official” has done so. Felipe took the throne last year following the abdication of his father, King Juan Carlos. The magazine is available online and the article on Felipe (pages 17-20) can be read in both Spanish and English. The opening paragraph is below.

CORRECTION: JMG reader Eduardo writes from Sitges to note that the above photo is an official royal portrait and that King Felipe did not “pose” for the magazine. Per Ragap Revista, the “royal house” did authorize the photo’s use as their cover image.
