- A human rights activist is threatening to release names of gay activists at the Flagstaff House
- Moses Foh Amoaning believes there are gay lobbyists at the seat of the presidency pushing for homosexuality to be legalized
- Homosexuality is still illegal in Ghana despite many groups emerging to fight for gay rights
Lawyer and leader of National Coalition for Proper Human Rights and Family Values, Moses Foh Amoaning, says he will be revealing the names of gay activists at the Flagstaff House.
The human rights lawyer who is strictly against the legalization of homosexuality believes a strong sect of homosexuals in the highest positions of government are secretly engaging the embassies and other powerful countries over the need to push for gay rights in Ghana.
According to Moses Foh Amoaning, recent calls on the government to consider gay rights are clearly the doing of powerful government officials and not western countries like the US.
In an interview with Fox FM, the lawyer said Ghanaians will have to brace themselves for the possible legalization of gay marriage.
So far, the government is insisting that the decision to legalize homosexuality is in the power of Ghanaians.
President Akufo-Addo revealed in an interview with Aljazeera that it will need a strong lobby from gay activists to legalize homosexuality in the country.
The speaker of parliament, Mike Ocquaye Jnr, has also insisted that Ghana will never legalize homosexuality.
The speaker of parliament, who doubles as a pastor, believes legalizing homosexuality will be an "evil act against the will of God."
Ghana's conservative society has seen the gay community mostly silent and in hiding as cases of stigma and brutality abound.
To this effect, members of the gay community often risk their lives moving out of the country to get married or freely live their lives.
YEN.com.gh had earlier told the news of how a former school prefect of the Achimota School married his American gay boyfriend after years of being together.
Also, a group of 8 Ghanaians in Canada is seeking out signatures to pressurize government of Ghana to respect the rights of the LGBT community - a development which has seen several Ghanaians lash out at them on social media.
Being gay in Ghana comes with grave challenges with the most brutal and deadly been mob justice - a development which continues to see the LGBT community in Ghana always in hiding.
