The debate for and against the legalization of LGBTQI continues to rage on with people from all aspects of life throwing in their opinion and what it means.The discussion has taken a very serious turn since it has gotten to the higher echelons of power. Some lawmakers in the country have taken it upon themselves to fight any attempt to legalize it. So serious are these parliamentarians that they have tendered in a document which seeks to criminalize the act even though some other prominent personalities, including some academicians and legal luminaries have challenged it.
It is in this line of argument that a religious leader, who was once gay has come out to issue a warning former gay.
Aaron Adjetey Akrong, has cautioned Parliament to not legalize Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI+) activities in Ghana, as doing so would mean passing a death sentence on persons involved in the act.
The repented gay, now a pastor, said being an LGBTQI+ member or gay, in his case, comes with so many serious negative implications on one’s physical, psychological and emotional health which makes life uncomfortable for them.
He made these pleas at press conference organized by Advocates for Christ – Ghana (A4CG), an interdenominational civil society group, on Friday in Accra where he also revealed that about 90% of LGBTQI+ members are HIV positive.
