Ghanaian journalist, Ignatius Annor, has opened up on being Gay as he throws his support as an LGBTQI activist in Ghana.
The former Metro Tv anchor said he denied his s*xuality publicly for years, most especially on the Restoration Program which was hosted by the General Manager of Angel TV Stacy Amoateng because he was afraid of losing his job and also being stigmatized in society.
Ignatius made the revelation in an interview with Joy News over the current trending issue of LGBT rights in the country.
“I want to say this on the record, I know for some people who are seeing me through this very line it might sound a bit contradictory and that is because in the past I has denied my truth and I had denied the fact that I was gay and I did that because of the fear of losing my career”
“So this is going to be the first time that is using your medium to say that not only am I an activist for the right of Africa’s sexual minorities, what you call the LGBT right community but I am gay and that is the truth that I have accepted and that is the truth I live by. Because I was ousted as a gay person and 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 fear of what will happen to me personally” he disclosed.
According to him, there aren’t any special rights that gays are asking for but simply to be left alone to also live their lives.
“What my community is asking for is the opportunity to love like all humanity loves, particularly in the case of Ghana hetero-s*xuals,”
