The European Union is pledging support for civil society groups that promotes the rights of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual and Transgender in Ghana.

It follows the opening of a new community space for Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual and Transgender in Accra .

It added “Equality, tolerance and respect for each other are core values of the EU. The EU supports civil society organisations promoting #LGBTIQ rights .”

Meanwhile some Ghanaians have taken to the EU’s facebook page to condemn the opening of the community space for LGBT in Ghana.

Below are some of the comments

Meanwhile the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values has expressed disapproval over an alleged opening of an office by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Transgender and queer Intersex Rights (LGBTQI) movement in Ghana.

The Coalition said the alleged existence of the office was illegal and an affront to the laws, traditions and customs of the country and must be shut down.

The Executive Secretary of the Coalition, Moses Foh-Amoaning, at a press conference, said the act was disrespecting to Ghanaians and undermined the sovereignty of the State.

“We call on all state agencies including Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), the Ghana AIDS Commission, the police, politicians and the media to take all steps to protect our nation from the negative impact of this LGBTQI,” he said.

Most Reverend Philip K. Naameh, President of the Catholic Bishops Conference described the LGBTQI agenda as a “complete disorder of the fundamental law of God in creating man and woman.”

“The LGBTQI is a clear departure from God’s purpose of creation because the woman was not created to be an object of pleasure for man,” he said adding that the Catholic as a Church would only continue to recognise marriages between a man and a woman to ensure that God’s purpose of creation materialized.
