Allow homosexual rights, and they will be on their own to deal with the consequences - Mr. Beautiful

Mr Beautiful, a Ghanaian actor, has petitioned the Ghanaian government to provide the LGBTQ+ community equal rights in the country.

After Member of Parliament Sam George argued with a CNN presenter on live television last week to dispute the anti-LGBTQ+ bill proposed by some parliamentarians, the LGBTQ+ debate has resurfaced.

Despite the fact that the majority of Ghanaians support the bill, there are others who oppose it.

Mr Beautiful – real name Clement Bonney – has added his voice to the issue, saying that gays should be permitted their rights in the country and that when the repercussions of being gay arrive, they will face them alone.

“I'm not gay and don't know anyone who's gay, I haven't made up my mind to be gay,” he told blogger Sammy K this week during an interview. “If someone decides to sleep with a fellow man and be happy, that's fine – it's their choice.”

He stated that rejecting the "natural manner" of having a sexual relationship is a personal choice, and that if it makes gay people happy, so be it.

“For me, I believe that God created a nice hole [vagina] for us to enjoy, but if someone chooses to sleep with a man, and that will make them happy, it's their choice. That's their right. If they want their rights, give it to them. And then when the consequences are coming, they will face it.”

When questioned if the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana should be legalized, he quickly said, "I never mentioned legalization."

Prince David Osei, a fellow actor, welcomed the LGBTQ+ bill on Monday, saying: "God made Adam and Eve in the beginning, not Steve and Steve!! If you're gay, no one is rejecting your humanity. However, we are not allowed to act as though men are women and women are males. We will not change basic biology since it would jeopardize a person's subjective feeling of being gay."

He also said: “For all of human history boy met girl, girl met boy! You can’t magically change your gender, you can’t magically change your age, you can’t magically change your sex."
