Influential Ghanaians in the diaspora declare support LGBTQ Ghana

A letter declaring support for the Ghanaian LGBTQ by influential Ghanaians in the diaspora has been released.

The letter acknowledges the latest LGBTQ debate and development in Ghana, following the LGBTQ office that has been shut down in Accra after public outcry.

An excerpt of the statement reads “We have watched with profound concern as you have had to question the safety of your vital work at the LGBT+ Rights Ghana Centre in Accra, and feared for your personal wellbeing and security. It is unacceptable to us that you feel unsafe”.

“As prominent and powerful advocates for this great country, we are beseeching His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and political/cultural leaders to create a pathway for allyship, protection and support. We petition for inclusivity which will make the nation even greater and even stronger,” it continued.

The letter has been signed by British model Naomi Campbell and Nigerian singer Jidenna among a list that also contains a number of influential Ghanaians in the diaspora.

 

Hollywood actor, Idris Elba and his wife, Boris Kodjoe with his wife, have signed the letter which has been shared on social media by the influential people who agree with its content.

Other notable Ghanaians who signed the letter dubbed ‘Ghana Supports Equality‘ include Edward Enninful, British Vogue editor who belongs to the LGBTQ community, Virgil Abloh Virgil Abloh, a Ghanaian-American designer with Louis Vuitton.

Bozoma Saint John who is currently the chief marketing officer at Netflix but previously worked with Uber and Apple Music with American rapper Vic Mensa, British actress Michaela Ewuraba Boakye among others have endorsed the campaign as well.

See the letter below plus all its signatories who signed it in solidarity with the LGBTQ community in Ghana.
