If You Are A Man Go And Say You Support LGBTQ - K.T. Hammond Warns MPs

The debate on the LGBTQI+ Bill does not seem to end anytime soon as new arguments continue to spring up everyday.

The Member of Parliament for Adansi Asokwa, K.T. Hammond has challenged his colleague members of Parliament who have the balls, to openly oppose the Anti-LGBTQI bill and see where they will fine themselves in the next election.

According to the Member of Parliament, the practice of LGBTQI is against the Ghanaian culture and values, and the larger society does not support the act. Moreover, members of Parliament are supposed to promote the interest of the people they represent. So if the MPs dare to kick against the bill, they risk losing the next election and hence they are likely not to return to Parliament.

In an interview on Accra based Asempa FM, Hon. K.T. Hammond said “Which constituency will you go and say I am against the Anti-LGBTQUI+ bill in promotion of that nonsense of activities. If you are a man with ‘big balls’ go and say you support activities of homosexuality and see if you will come back to parliament. We beg the clergy that we will represent their interest”, he stressed.

 “It is a private members bill and has some legal components we are looking at but that does not imply that MPs are in support of the LGBTQI+ nonsense…not at all. It will never happen and I am sure no lawmaker will support that nonsense of the practice. It is madness to allow them to come d such things here”,

The legislation is titled ‘The Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021’.

The bill has sparked lots of arguments from human rights activists and people who are sympathetic of LGBTQI people. That not withstanding, the bill has been welcomed by the majority of Ghanaians including both Christian and Islamic groups.
