Center for Religion and Public Life petitions Parliament to reject Anti-LGBTQ Bill


The Center for Religion and Public Life (CRPL-Ghana) has petitioned the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee of Parliament not to pass the bill against Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQI+) groups. This was contained in a statement signed by the Executive Director of CRPL-Ghana, Rev. Canon Dr. Confidence W. Bansah, and directed to the Chairman of the Committee, Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi. In recent months, the LGBT community in Ghana has increased calls for homosexual activities and same-sex marriages to be legalised.
