Spanish Royals And The LGBT Community

Several articles have appeared in recent weeks pointing out warm relations between the Spanish Royal Household and the gay community.

Indeed, last month, King Felipe congratulated Spanish LGBT publication Shangay on its anniversary.

But that wasn’t the first gesture. After taking over as monarchs, King Felipe and Queen Letizia made a point to invite the LGBT community to royal receptions.

King Felipe was also the first royal to appear on the cover of a magazine geared toward the LGBT community.

His father, King Juan Carlos, approved of legislation legalizing gay marriage in Spain in 2005.
