Boris Kodjoe, Idris Elba, Naomi Campbell, others sign letter in solidarity with Gay people in Ghana

Published

on

African celebrities in the diaspora  including Boris Kodjoe, Idris Elba, Edward Enninful, Naomi Campbell and others have signed a letter in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana.

According to the group of allies, they are worried about the safety of the LGBTQ+ in Ghana.

“In recent weeks we have watched with profound concern as you have had to question the safety of your vital work at the LGBT+ Rights Ghana Centre in Accra, and feared for your personal wellbeing and security. It is unacceptable to us that you feel unsafe,” the letter reads.

This comes following the uproar of Ghanaians after the opening of a LGBTQ+ office in Accra.

The group organized a fundraiser which was attended by several diplomats including the Australian High Commissioner who pledged his support.

The office which  was subsequently shut down after many deliberations did not go down well with the community as they feel their rights have being violated.

In the letter, which has been signed by sixty-seven other Africans and Ghanaians in areas in movies, fashion and music in the Diaspora, they are asking His Excellency, Nana Akufo-Addo to “engage in a meaningful and purposeful dialogue with the LGBTQ+ community leaders to create a pathway for allyship, protection and support.”

Read full letter below:

Meanwhile at a recent speech during the  installation of the 2nd Archbishop of the Anglican Church held in Asante Mampong, H.E Nana Akufo-Addo stated that same-sex marriage will remain illegal under his Presidency.

“I have said it before, and let me stress it again, that it will not be under the Presidency of Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo that same-sex marriage will be legal,” he stressed.
