LGBTQ+ People in Ghana Appeals to USA and UK Embassies for Move Them From Ghana To America And UK

While growing hostility towards the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana, their plea for help has become more urgent as they look to find refuge in the welcoming arms of communities in the USA and UK.

Faced with constant fear and uncertainty following the recent approval of the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill in the Ghanaian Parliament, members of the LGBTQ+ community are struggling to envision a safe future for themselves. In a revealing conversation, they shared the harsh realities of their daily lives, marked by threats of violence and legal repercussions.

The oppressive atmosphere has made it difficult for them to find peace and security, prompting them to consider seeking relocation.

The approval of the anti-LGBT bill, if signed into law by President Nana Akufo-Addo, would further restrict the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, adding to their challenges.

Although President Nana Akufo-Addo has not yet received the bill and has spoken about the country’s commitment to human rights, the urgency of the LGBTQ+ community’s plea to the USA and UK embassies highlights the severity of their situation as they seek safety in countries known for their support of human rights and inclusivity.
