Pro-LGBT+ protest hits Ghana’s High Commission in UK [Video]

A gathering of activists and supporters representing the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT+) community staged a protest outside Ghana’s High Commission in the United Kingdom on March 6, 2024.

The protest aimed to oppose the recently approved Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill, commonly referred to as the anti-LGBT+ Bill.

Over 100 demonstrators wore clothing adorned with rainbow colors symbolizing the gay pride movement and carried banners advocating for the repeal of the Bill.

In a video shared by Asaase Radio, a radio station based in Accra, speakers expressed their distress over the enactment of such legislation and urged others to join in defending the rights of sexual minorities.

One activist said, “They are forcing many of us into exile, not on a slave ship this time, but through discriminatory laws crafted by individuals like them.”

The anti-LGBT+ Bill currently prohibits LGBT activities and imposes penalties for their promotion, advocacy, and financial support.

Violators could face imprisonment ranging from six months to three years, while those found guilty of promoting or financing such activities might be sentenced to three to five years in prison.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has not yet signed the Bill into law, citing a pending lawsuit at the Supreme Court.
