Call him/her the first public transgender in Ghana, Madina Broni as s/he is loved to be called took the brave step in revealed the truth behind such a decision.

The development sparks controversial debates on whether homosexuality should be made legal here in Ghana. As it stands now, being transgender in Ghana comes with a huge risk as health facilities and public centres all do not have special treatment for persons in the LGBT community.

Government maintains that even though it stays committed to protecting the rights of homosexuals in the country, there is no way the act and practice can be legalised in the country.

Even though government’s stance on homosexuality is well known, there still tend to be seeming pressure by donor partners and gay support groups for anti-gay laws in the country to be relaxed or repealed.
