Ghanaian journalist Reveals He is Gay Says He was Afraid To Open UP

Published

on

Ghanaian journalist and LGBTQI+ activist  Ignatius Annor has finally opened up on his sexual preferences as he reveals that he is gay and has been afraid to open up about it due to fears of losing his job and also been discriminated against.

According to Ignatius, he is openly confessing that he is gay because he cannot hide it from anyone since he is an LGBT activist and isn’t shy of who he is.

“This is going to be the very first time that I am using your medium to say that not only am I an activist for the rights of Africa’s sexual minorities, what you will call the LGBTQI community, but I am gay.

Obviously, I denied it because I was afraid of losing my job, I was working at an incredible Television station in Accra and also for the fear of what would happen to me personally,

Speaking with Ayisha Ibrahim on her PM: Express Monday, the pro LGBTQI+ activist revealed that himself and the team of LGBTqs are very unhappy with the way people treat them when they get to find out that they are into men or women which to them is their human right and should be respected.

“What my community is asking for is the opportunity love like all humanity love, particularly in the case of Ghana hetero-sexuals,”

He further revealed that the closure of their office is a breach of their fundamental human right and should be reopened for them so they can express themselves freely.

He stated saying;

It doesn’t feel like I am a human being who deserves the right to employment, the right to education, and normally the basic rights to be able to walk, drive around to wherever that I want to go to in Ghana as an openly gay man, it doesn’t feel okay, it feels dehumanized and awful.”
