The Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, 2021 is a private bill brought to parliament by a private citizen with support from the Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George.

Although many have critiqued the bill for being anti-LGBTQ, drafters insist it is in the good interest of Ghana and family tradition.

A senior adviser to President Akufo-Addo, Gabby Otchere Darko, has accused framers of the anti-LGBTQI bill if exposing Ghana to be blacklisted as a country promoting hate against a minority group.

Taking to his Twitter page, Gabby tweeted that " this Bill only serves one purpose: to get Ghana blacklisted for promoting hate!"

The controversial bill was introduced by a private citizen and subsequently had the backing of some members of parliament including the MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George.
