A Ghanaian advocate for human rights, Texas Kadir Moro, has initiated a solitary demonstration, partially unclothed, to protest against Parliament’s approval of the anti-LGBTQ+ legislation.

The human rights advocate, who conducted his solo demonstration along major streets of Accra and concluded it at Independence Square, believes that society should treat homosexuals fairly, especially considering that adultery and fornication occur without consequences in the country.

On Wednesday, February 28, 2024, Parliament unanimously approved the contentious legislation, which prohibits activities related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals and criminalizes their advocacy, promotion, and funding in Ghana.

If signed into law by the President, the anti-LGBTQ bill will enforce penalties for the deliberate promotion and participation in LGBTQ activities within the country.

The bill imposes a minimum sentence of six months and a maximum of three years for individuals engaged in same-sex activities. However, those convicted of promoting, advocating, or funding LGBTQ activities could face a minimum of three years and a maximum of five years in prison.

During his demonstration, Texas Kadir Moro displayed placards with messages such as “Proper human sexual rights and Ghanaian family bill; the pot calling the kettle black,” “Send homosexuals to churches and mosques for prayer and deliverance and not to prison for propagation of the act,” and “If you fear Ghana will incur the wrath of God because of homosexuality; read Quran verse 17:32 and Leviticus 20:10-12” to emphasize his point.

In his speech, he stated, “While acknowledging that homosexuality is a sin despised by God, we must also recognize that fornication and adultery are equally condemned, yet prevalent in our society where men openly display their mistresses and women their lovers.”

According to him, homosexuals should receive fair treatment similar to individuals who engage in activities like fornication, adultery, or other forms of illicit sexual behavior, including premarital sex.
