The LGBTQ bill is expected to be put before Parliament house today, Monday, August 2, 2021.
The promotion of Proper Sexual Human Right and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021, has been the topic of discussion in Ghana for about weeks now.
The bill seeks to criminalize LGBTQ practice and advocacy, ensure protection of children and persons who are victims or accused of LGBTQ practice and related activities in the country.
Meanwhile, some Ghanaians have raised concerns that passing this bill into law could inflict severe consequences on Ghana’s economy and International relations.

However, some International Relation Analysts have expressed their thoughts on the issue. Professor Antwi Danso, an International Relations Analyst argued that “Why do you want to universalise it, because it is a psychological or psychiatric thing and why not the world find antidote to these problem for them to be normal but rather we say it is human rights then I am saying very soon armed robbers will be demanding human rights too.”
“The Government should know that’s not the views of Ghanaians but it is a bill from the Parliament and I strongly suspect if the people’s voice are strong, it is the people’s voice. I don’t think the Government will resist” he added.
