Following the leak of the proposed LGBTQ Bill in Ghana which seeks to criminalise LGBTQ identification and advocacy in Ghana, the LGBTQ Rights Ghana has called for an emergency town hall meeting to see the way forward.

On Thursday, July 22, a copy of the LGBTQ bill, drafted by the Member of Parliament for Ningo – Prampram,  Sam George and 7 other members of parliament made its way to the internet and has since sparked several conversations online.

The bill not only seeks to punish LGBTQ members, it also states that any individual or media entity that uses their platform to discuss or advocate for their rights could spend at least 5-10 years imprisonment.

Reacting to what the group terms as an “anti LGBTQ Bill,” they are calling all members and sympathisers to a virtual town hall meeting on Sunday to discuss how to present a “formidable opposition” to the bill.

“LGBT Rights is calling an emergency town hall meeting to discuss how to present a formidable opposition to this anti LGBTQ Bill. We are open to suggestions and inputs. The meeting will be held virtually and on Sunday 25th July, 2021. Kindly send us a DM if you’ll like to join,” the group’s Twitter page tweeted.
