Ghanaian journalist and LGBTQI+ activist, Ignatius Annor has for the very first time openly declared he is gay after denying it over the years.

According to Ignatius Annor, who worked for years as an anchor on Metro TV, he had kept his alignment to the community a secret for fear of losing his job and the stigma that it could generate.

“This is going to be the very first time that I am using your medium to say that not only am I an activist for the rights of Africa’s sexual minorities, what you will call the LGBTQI community, but I am gay.

“Obviously, I denied it because I was afraid of losing my job, I was working at an incredible Television station in Accra and also for the fear of what would happen to me personally,” Mr Annor said on JoyNews via Zoom.

Speaking on PM: Express Monday, the pro LGBTQI+ activist said members of his community are unhappy “because you are not allowed to openly say who you are.”

“What my community is asking for is the opportunity love like all humanity loves, particularly in the case of Ghana heterosexuals,” he told Ayisha Ibrahim.

Annor’s confession comes after denying vehemently in 2015 that he was gay at a time when rumors about him were swirling around.

Ignatius Annor currently works with Euro News in France.
