The Royal couple pay tribute to members of the LGBT community, and supporters.

“We stand with you and support you” their post says. It ends with a rainbow.

shocking death toll in USA

Muhlaysia was brutally and repeatedly beaten in front of a large crowd in Dallas in April. Weeks later she was murdered, shot dead.

Three trans women were murdered in America in that one week.

The Human Rights Campaign, a leading LGBT group in the USA, say at least 26 trans people were murdered in the country last year.
