It's not an official pavilion, but Sulemana Abdulai hopes Folklorama visitors will show their support for the people of Ghana, especially those facing discrimination for their sexuality. Donning pink T-shirts that read "Ghanaian Pavillion," Abdulai and a small group of protesters will be visiting Folklorama pavilions over the course of the multicultural festival to collect signatures against anti-LGBT laws in the African nation. "The way they are treating the LGBTQ community in Ghana is so very bad," said Abdulai, who organized the effort. "People get killed [over] their sexual activities."
