Michael Essien under fire for publicly supporting Gay rights in Ghana
Ex Black Stars Midfielder, Michael Essien has stood in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana.
In a now deleted Instagram post on Monday, March 1, the Assistant Manager for FC Nordsjaelland shared a “Ghana Supports Equality” with the caption;
“We see you, we hear you, we support you. Our LGBTQIA plus Community in Ghana.”
This follows the open letter signed by sixty-seven Africans in Hollywood who called on President Nana Akufo-Addo and political/cultural leaders “to engage in meaningful dialogues with persons in the LGTBQI+ community.”
Minutes after his post, Twitter went crazy as many tweeps came for him for throwing his support to the group.
