On 29 June 2021, some legislators presented a copy of the draft of the Bill to the Speaker of Parliament. This bill is seeking to expand on the current law that provides up to three years in prison for same-sex activity.
The new bill when passed will prohibit and criminalize advocacy, funding and act of LGBTQ+ while promoting conversion therapy programs seeking to “convert” people from homosexuality to heterosexuality.
Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, President Akufo-Addo and top Islamic and Christian figures have pledged never to see to the acceptance of LGBTQ+ in Ghana.
