The west African country of Ghana has passed some of the harshest anti-LGBT laws. The country imposes gaol terms for anyone identifying as LGBTQ, anyone who founds LGBTQ groups and members of the public who fail to report anyone who they think is LGBTQ. The only thing stopping these laws is the country’s president. This has triggered an internation push to pressure the president to veto the laws, but so far there’s no sign either way of the president’s next move. Ohotuowo Ogbeche, from global advocacy group Outright International, has conducted research on the impact of Ghana’s anti-LGBT bill.
