Social commentator Akwasi Adoma Jr has revealed that he is forced, as a parent, to inspect the bottoms of his children anytime they return home from school due to the high prevalence of LGBTQI+ activities in Ghana.
Mr Adoma Jr told the Accra100.5FM’s morning show (Ghana Yensom) on Monday, 11 October 2021, that the LGBTQI+ activities in Ghana are becoming alarming, thus, his vigilance on his children.
He made the comment while discussing Ningo Prampram MP Sam George’s recent interview on CNN about the raging debate on criminalising same-sex activities in Ghana.
The main opposition National Democratic Congress lawmaker has been the lead advocate in the quest to criminalising LEGBTQI+ activities through a private members’ bill which is currently before the Ghanaian parliament.
The bill prescribes harsh custodial punishment for the LGBTQI+ community
Mr George, during the interview, told CNN host Larry Madowo that his suggestion that the bill was a reflection of hate for LGBTQI+ persons in Ghana, was unacceptable.
