India's first openly gay prince Gohil continued to party as Hurricane Irene raged

New York , Tue, 30 Aug 2011 ANI

New York, August 30 (ANI): Hurricane Irene proved to be an annoyance for many people, but it failed to stop Indian Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, who is India's first openly gay prince, from partying.


While threat of the 700-mile-wide storm prompted most Hamptons event organizers to cancel their weekend parties, recording artist Ivan Wilzig refused to throw in the turban on his fete for Gohil.


The party went on as scheduled at Wilzig's castle-like home in Water Mill on the weekend.


Wilzig, clad in an orange suit and matching cape emblazoned with a peace sign, presented the 45-year-old prince with a game-show sized check for 5,000 dollars that was made out to the royal's charity, the Laksyha Trust, which raises awareness about gay rights and HIV/AIDS prevention for homosexual men.


"If I could give out the Nobel Peace Prize, he would have already won it, but instead I'll just give him a lovely donation," the New York Daily News quoted Wilzig as saying, before adding that the check "is only the tip of the iceberg".


After graciously accepting the sum, Gohil said, "Americans are always very loving to me." (ANI)
