Ghana’s Parliament has approved a custodial sentence of a minimum of three (3) years and a maximum of five (5) years for the willful promotion, sponsorship, or support of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer+ (LGBTQ+) activities.

Again anyone caught in the act (practicing LGBTQ+) would also be subjected to a minimum sentence of 6 months and a maximum sentence of 3 years.

This came to light during parliamentary proceedings on the clause-by-clause amendment of the bill on the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values,
According to the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram Constituency in the Greater Accra region, Mr. Sam Nartey George what has perhaps delayed the passing of the bill is the establishment of an advocacy of the promotion of the activities.

“What created the confusion was the establishment of an advocacy of the promotion of the activities, that is what Ghanaians are against.

Nobody is interested in what you do in your bedroom. And so the punishment for one caught in the act is to be a minimum of 6 months and, a maximum of 3 years.
However, for anyone acting in a willful promotion, sponsorship or support of the agenda, the punitive measure for that is minimum 3 years, maximum 5 years.” The Ningo-Prampram lawmaker explained.
