The growing acceptance of same-sex marriage and other immoral behaviors in our country is a divisive subject among our political leaders. In 2018, His Excellency the President made it clear to Ghanaians that he would not allow LGBTQ to be legal in Ghana. However, in response to a question from the vice president of the United States of America during a visit to Jubilee House, the president changed his tune, leaving Ghanaians confused.
One reason why passing the bill may remain a pipe dream is because of what has happened to some Ugandan parliamentarians. The country’s Speaker of Parliament lost his visas to much of Europe after a resolution to criminalize the act was made in Uganda. Some members of the Ugandan Parliament, including the Speaker, have also been cut off from the European Union. After the bill was passed in Uganda, the United States issued travel warnings to its citizens.
