The Dean of the School of Information and Communication of the University of Ghana, Professor Audrey Gadzekpo has stated that the practice of homosexuality can be biological and so it has to be accepted as a country.
Professor Gadzekpo made this assertion during an interview on Newsfile on Joynews today, October 9, 2021.
Discussions around the subject matter have gained traction in the past few days as different people from academia have come out to express their opinions and also gone as far as petitioning the speaker of parliament not to go ahead with processes to pass the bill into law.
For them, the anti-LGBTQ+ bill in its current form is too harsh and will infringe on the rights of some individuals.
Professor Audrey Gadzekpo has come under intense criticism this week for her stance against the bill but she maintains her position on the matter. She says homosexuality has not also been an act of choice but some people are born with it and the rights of such people must be respected.
She argues that the anti-LGBTQ bill is harsh and does not serve the interest of the nation.
