Singer Angel Maxine has reiterated her uniqueness as Ghana's first-ever openly transgender musician as she continues to fiercely oppose the anti-LGBTQ+ bill.
The Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, also known as the anti-gay bill, seeks to criminalise homosexual intercourse and its promotion.
Angel Maxine, a member of the nation's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) community, is vehemently against the anti-gay bill and is using her music to fight it.
In an interview with BBC Africa, Maxine established that she was born effeminate and has long embraced her uniqueness.

The Wo Fie hit singer reiterated her struggle with social stigma and name-calling before she owned her personality.
