Statement in Solidarity with LGBTQI+ Ghanaians by a Collective of Africans in the Diaspora
Hollywood actor, Boris Kodjoe has shared a statement by a collective of Africans and Ghanaians in the Diaspora in support of LGBTQI+ Ghanaians.
Over the weeks, the LGBT+ Rights Ghana and the trans* community group Alliance for Dynamics Initiative have been the topic of discussion in the Ghanaian media and on social media. This is due to the ransacking of the LGBT+ Rights Ghana offices.
On the 31st of January 2021, LGBT+ Rights Ghana celebrated the opening of a community space meant to center and safeguard Ghanaian queer and trans people. Nearly a month later on February 24, plainclothes police raided the offices of LGBT+ Rights Ghana.
Joining their voice to the ongoing conversation, Boris Kodjoe shared a statement dated March 1st, 2021, by a group of over 100 Africans in the Diaspora. The statement called on President Akufo-Addo and political/cultural leaders to engage in meaningful dialogues with persons in the LGTBQI+ community.
