Listen Now

A Ghanaian journalist and LGBTQI+ activist has for the very first time openly declared he is gay.

According to Ignatius Annor, he had kept his sexual status secret for the fear of losing his job and the stigma that surrounds it.

“This is going to be the very first time that I am using your medium to say that not only am I an activist for the rights of Africa’s sexual minorities, what you will call the LGBTQI community, but I am gay.

“Obviously, I denied it because I was afraid of losing my job, I was working at an incredible Television station in Accra and also for the fear of what would happen to me personally,” Mr Annor said on JoyNews via Zoom.

Over recent days, the issue of the LGBTQI community has been trending in Ghana, with different people giving different opinions.
