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.
