Ghanaian gays and lesbians leaving abroad have in a show of solidarity with their compatriots back home decided to raise funds to "support" the LGBT+ Community.
The clarion call comes on the back of the raid on and closure of the Accra office of the gay advocacy group, LGBT+ Rights Ghana by police officers and National Security at the behest of the landlord.
"I am calling out to all Ghanaian GAY people living outside Ghana, who are Doing well and have some Money ,I need you Guyz to WhatsApp Me So we Raise Money to Support Gay People in Ghana ,It is going to be a Tough Fight ,But whats going on Needs to Happen ,even Worse things are about to Happen and that is How there will be CHANGE through a REVOLUTION", she wrote on the social media platform.
Her post has since generated mixed reactions in the comment section; while some of her followers sermonised about how dangerous homosexuality is, others showed their willingness to canvass support for the gay community in Ghana.
"But we need to play our Part and support our Brothers and Sisters in Ghana ,Their Lifes are in DANGER , inbox us ,if you wish to Support, Thank you #GayLifeMatters #LoveIsLove", she concluded with love emojis.
Linda Ampadu and her spouse Dorcas have been avowed advocates of gay rights since they made their sexual orientation public on social media few years ago.
The couple have managed to have a child through artificial insemination; Linda has been previously married to a man and bore 3 children but divorced to unite with her lesbian lover, Dorcas, who is also a Ghanaian.
