Ghana has no freedom until the anti-LGBTQ+ bill is cancelled- Sister Derby on Independence Day

On Ghana’s Independence Day, singer and activist Sister Deborah, took a bold stance on social media advocating for the rights of the LGBTQ community in the country.

In a passionate post on X, the artist underscored that true freedom for all Ghanaians is unattainable unless the queer community is granted the same liberties.

Sister Deborah’s advocacy extended to challenging the country’s motto of “Freedom and Justice,” urging for the removal of the notion of ‘freedom’ to be all-encompassing.

She emphasised the need for inclusivity and equality for every individual, regardless of their sexual orientation.

Deploying hashtags such as #QueerGhanaianLivesMatter and #KillTheBill, Sister Deborah voiced her strong opposition to the controversial anti-LGBTQ Bill recently passed by Ghana’s Parliament.

The proposed legislation, currently awaiting presidential assent, seeks to criminalize LGBTQ activities and impose sanctions on those involved in promoting, advocating, or funding such activities.

Sister Deborah’s vocal support for the LGBTQ community adds a prominent voice to the ongoing debate surrounding the bill, sparking conversations about the importance of embracing diversity and ensuring equal rights for all citizens in the West African nation.

  1. Who is she referring to as quire brother or sister? We don’t have such relationship as Ghanaians. Perhaps she has found herself in a wrong country. She should go and search for her country. Not Ghana. It i deed marvels me when people talk about rights and relating it to LBGTQ++ in Ghana. I need to be educated as to how these rights emate and enshrined unto citizens. For I know there is no conscious constitutional provision anywhere in our legal system granting any right to them in Ghana. Talking about inalienable rights, a d natural law, our culture has never identified any of such deviant behaviours from north to south or west to East as acceptable. Can someone boldly come out and tell proponents of this group to look for the country they rightly fit which has such rights for them? In Ghana we don’t have such rights anywhere either conscious or unconcious. Please give us a break. Such rights do not exist in Ghana as a sovereign state.
