India’s first openly gay prince said his parents tried to make him undergo conversion therapy in a interview with Sky News. Speaking from Jaipur, India, on Friday, Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil told the news channel that his mother and father would’ve gone to go to extreme lengths to try to make him straight. “My parents were planning to open up up my brain, perform a surgery on my brain,” he said. “They were planning to make me undergo electro shock therapy.” As his parents planned for him to receive the treatments in the US where conversion therapy has been widely discredited, he was ultimately able to avoid being subjected to such practices.
