Furore Over LGBTQ+ In Ghana Needless, Allow Them – NPP National Chairman [video]

The national chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay  has said the recent furore over activities of the LGBTQI+ community in Ghana is unnecessary.

To mark Pride month, LGBTQ+ activists mounted billboards in the capital Accra and two other cities with the inscription “Love, Tolerance and Acceptance.”

Rights activists in Ghana are protesting after a crowd, urged on by some MPs and opinion leaders, tore down the billboards that promoted tolerance toward the LGBTQ community.

Talking to Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on Townhall Talk on Asaase Radio (17 June), Blay said there is too much hypocrisy surrounding the issue in Ghana.

“If people want to be gays, it should be their own problem. I won’t go ahead to be a persecutor of those who want to be together as man and man or woman and woman,” the former MP said.

“I think there’s too much hypocrisy about it. Emotions have been excited over it to the extent that we are not sober over it. I honestly do not see the hullabaloo about it. We should allow them if they want to.

“I don’t subscribe to gayism as a choice because I’m not attracted by that, but I don’t want to go into people’s bedrooms. I don’t want to see what they are doing,” Blay said.

Angry residents raze LGBTQ+ billboard in Tamale

Some angry residents of Tamale in the Northern Region have razed a billboard allegedly projecting the activities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI+) in the metropolis.

It comes barely a week after a similar billboard was pulled down on the Accra-Tema Motorway that supposedly promotes LGBTQI+ activities.

The Tamale billboard had the inscription: ”Love, tolerance, and acceptance” with colours usually associated with the LGBTQ+ community.
