LGBT is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. In use since the 1990s, it functions as an umbrella term for sexuality and gender identity. It may refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender. To recognize this inclusion, a popular variant, LGBTQ, adds the letter Q for those who identify as queer.
Homophobic attacks against LGBT people are common and are often encouraged by the media and religious and political leaders. Same-sex sexual acts between males are illegal in Ghana, and LGBT rights are heavily suppressed. Reports of young gay people being kicked out of their homes are also common, as well as reports of conversion therapy.
Despite the Constitution guaranteeing a right to freedom of speech, Ghanaian citizens are often denied these fundamental rights by the government.
Most Ghanaians are not ready to even listen to the debate of whether to accept LGBTQ in the country or not. According to many people, it is against our culture and even against Christianity and the Islamic religion. Many Church Reverends and Pastors have debated and preached about how the Lord will "curse" the country if we accept LGBTQ.
Lawyer Akoto Ampaw is one of the lawyers who are backing a bill that the Ghanaian Parliament wants to pass into law to criminalize gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) in the country. According to him, the laws of the country speaks about human rights and everyone should be allowed to enjoy fundamental human rights.
On the list, the number 6 is Dr Charles Wereko Brobbey. He being on the list has really shocked most people who commented.
