OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Actress Juliet Ibrahim has waded into the raging debate over LGBTQIA rights in Ghana with a strong warning.
According to Ibrahim, there are top officials in Ghana who are queer and they must speak up or risk being exposed.
There has been an ongoing discourse about the activities of an LGBTQIA group in the country.
The group recently opened an office at Ashongman Estate in the Dome-Kwabenya constituency which it described as a safe haven for members.
After news of the office's opening came up, many Ghanaians called on the government to shut it down citing that the laws of the land prohibit such activities.
As previously reported by YEN.com.gh, the LGBTQIA office was shut down by the police on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
The group took to its Instagram page to share photos of the police raid and condemned it while calming its members down.
It was in a comment under the post that Juliet Ibrahim who sounded very angry by the shutdown of the office decided to vent.
For her, there were more important things to be done in Ghana than spending time to close the office.
Wondering why some 'big men' who are queer have kept quiet over the closure, she threatened to expose them.
"Let them not push many to call out top officials who are queer and not speaking up against this barbaric behaviour ooo. Instead of focusing on more pressing issues, this is what they spend time doing?."
