Most Ghanaians have recently expressed their outmost concerns about the introduction of an LGBT office in the Ghanaian capital. Most people have the feeling that the office should be closed down since it's against the norms and traditions of the Ghanaian community.

This has caused a legal practitioner, Lawyer Joyce Opoku Boateng expressed her view on LGBT rights.

Lawyer Joyce Opoku Boateng, has expressed that it will be unlawful to close down an office of the LGBTQI branch which has sprung up in Ghana. 

As indicated by Madam Boateng, however the traditions and laws of Ghana disapprove of the act, yet these people have rights which should be regarded. 

“I don’t think it will be right for anyone to invade their office and attack them because they have not met to engage in sexual activities.

“Every human being when you’re born has a fundamental right that no one can take away from you. But we have our norms and culture that frown upon certain things,” she said on Accra-based Starr FM.

“If you are caught in the act of having unnatural carnal practice then that’s criminal but when someone expresses his/herself, that’s not criminal because the law is not against that. Assuming someone dresses like a female and you go and beat up the person, it’s a clear case of assault,” she added.

As far as she might be concerned, the act must be criminal when individuals are trapped in the act yet not when unequivocally communicating their perspectives on the issues. 

Her perspectives return on the of calls from the Executive Secretary of the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values, Moses Foh-Amoaning, for the public authority to close down the LGBTQI office in Accra. 

The gathering is accounted for to have coordinated a pledge drive which was gone to by a few negotiators including the Australian High Commissioner who vowed to help the gathering. 

Then, the Secretary of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, Reverend Emmanuel Bariga, has kept up they will do all that could be within reach to oppose the demonstration which he depicted as shrewd.
