It seems the LGBT fight in Ghana is far from ending anytime soon as the corporate involved have maintained their energy even though they have faced criticism from the Ghanaian people which led to the closing down of their office in the country by President Akufo-Addo.
According to Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders, Intersex, Queers and Allies championing(LGBT+) Ghana the government may have closed down their office but cannot close their real office which is their hearts and minds.
As earlier on reported by Ghanaontheglobe.com it is believed that our customs and traditions doesn’t accept this LGBT+ thing which has caused public uproar against it.
LGBT+ right Ghana posted on their official Facebook handle that,
“While this unfortunate incident has happened, we wish to encourage all our members, and queer Ghanaians to stay calm. Do not panic. We anticipated this. We will triumph. The police may have raided our office, and closed it down but the real office, is in our hearts, and minds.”
ABOUT LGBT+ RIGHTS GHANA(FROM THEIR SITE)
LGBT+ Rights Ghana was formed on July 13, 2018 initially as a Cyber Activism Blog – a platform that uses social media to create awareness on LGBT issues in Ghana and the world. Currently maximizing on capacity to initiate a movement in the interest of LGBT persons living in Ghana, the initial plan was to empower the LGBT community in Ghana to cause the change that we deserve. This was done through the creation of a Facebook group and page, an Instagram account, a Twitter account and a YouTube channel. Eventually, a WhatsApp group was created, which saw the need to come together in unified fashion to make a social and political statement. At the moment, a few capacity building initiatives are ongoing under LGBT+Rights Ghana.
