A group calling itself Journalists against LGBTQI has said the ball is currently in President Akufo-Addo’s court to once and for all state his stance on homosexuality in Ghana.

He served notice the group will be holding a demonstration against the LGBTQI saying Ghanaians would have to support them by wearing red on Friday to drum home their demand for the LGBTQI not be allowed to operate.
He explained that the issue of LGBTQI and its criminal nature is non-negotiable and cannot be justified in any shape or form.
He indicated that not only does the Ghanaian culture frown upon it, but the laws governing the State also make it criminal.
Explaining further, he said Section 104 of Ghana’s Criminal Code prohibits one from having unnatural carnal knowledge with another person hence, Ghana should not entertain the legalization of LGBTQI.
Section 104(1)(b) of the Criminal Offences Act states that: “A person who has unnatural carnal knowledge of another person of not less than sixteen years of age with the consent of that other person commits a misdemeanor”.
