My personal interaction with a gay man in Ghana

Over the couple of days, social media has been awashed with tales of an LGBT+ office in Ghana. To start, Ghana is a homophobic society and we do not countenance on anyone who isn't heterosexual. I won't shy away from it, I once knew a few gays (about four) and I must admit they are very wonderful people.

The way they make time to listen to you, the way they comfort you and also the way they make you feel at ease is wonderful. They are also very handsome so I ask them, "why can't you simply like girls like everyone."

Two of them were honest with me. For them, they do not feel comfortable having girls as partners. The kind of warmth they find with male lovers cannot be compared to female lovers.

I equally aaked them how it felt to be gay. They replied that it was wonderful and that as a gay man only fellow gay men could know how they truly felt. They also said that heterosexual relationships were boring. They said that gay men knew how to love and cherish them and they have never found this feeling with any female.

Asked if they would ever want to be straight, they said no. They said they were born that way and would never change anything about them.

They also remarked the various discriminations they face when people learnt that they were gay. They don't tell people much, they just live their lives and trust me, if no one tells you that they are gay, you'd never know.
