MP bizarre attempt to defend Gahanna's anti-gay bill ends with an attack on trans humanity


Ghana’s parliament is set to debate draconian anti-lgbt bill

Ghana’s parliament is set to debate a bill that -- if passed -- would introduce one of the harshest anti-LGBTQ laws on the African continent.  

Sam Georgegh, the MP who introduced "The Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill" at the behest of US evangelists could not defend this bill criminalizing LGBT people. Instead, he spent time gaslighting the United States, in an interview terminated with him questioning transgender Ghanaians humanity.

 In 2019 a conference was hosted in Accra, Ghana by the World Congress of Families, which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has identified as an international hate group, and HRC calls "one of the most influential American organizations involved in the export of hate." 

 One of the highlights of the conference, for attendees, was the presence of US ultra-conservative organizer Brian Brown, the president of the World Congress of Families (WCF). 

This is where the current push to criminalize LGBTQI people took shape. If the title of the Ghanaian bill sounds familiar, it should. The same wording has appeared in over 50 anti-LGBTQI bills in the US this year.
NAIROBI, Aug 12 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A Ghanaian bill criminalising LGBT+ people will establish “a system of state-sponsored discrimination and violence” against sexual minorities, U.N. human rights experts warned on Thursday, urging authorities to reject the proposed law.
