Ghana’s Supreme Court to Consider Anti-LGBTQ+ Law

Following the recent passing by both main political parties in Parliament of a bill that cruelly criminalizes Ghanaians who identify as LGBTQ+ persons and anyone promoting gender diverse lifestyles, the country’s President has asked Ghana’s Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of the bill.  The Minister of Finance has warned that the country could lose nearly USD 4B in loans from the World Bank if President approves the law. The United States, United Kingdom, and other western donor countries have expressed strong opposition to the bill and are considering imposing sanctions on its leading advocates and reducing or withdrawing their bilateral aid to Ghana if it becomes law.  For more on this evolving story, click HERE
