Ghanaians and allies in New York and California on October 11, organised a protest against the anti-LGBT bill set to be debated in Parliament.

The Protest, which saw rallies organized in Harlem, New York, and in Oakland, California is aimed at getting the anti-LGBT bill scrapped.

The Conveners of the protest say the bill   If passed, “would impede HIV and other health services for LGBTQ+ people. The bill would also required suspected LGBTQ+ people to “recant” their sexual and gender identities and pay for conversion therapy to avoid prison time.

“Ultimately, the law would torture and endanger the lives and health of LGBTQl+ Ghanaians”.

They also added that “If passed, the law would push Ghana’s LGBTQl+ community further into shadows and increase incidents of violence.

“It would also chill speech online and abroad by allowing the extradition and prosecution of Ghanaian advocates and allies”.

They are calling on Ghanaians both home and abroad to join the call for the rejection of the bill using hashtags #QueerGhanaiansLivesMatter#KillTheBillGhana#Ghanagetsbetter.
