Australian High Commissioner To Ghana Gregory Andrews Sparks LGBTIQ Debate On Facebook

Gregory Andrews

Most Ghanaians often hate the idea of entertaining anything that presents itself as advocating for acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning (LGBTIQ) individuals.

Therefore, it was no surprise that when the official Facebook page of the Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, Gregory Andrews shared a post about LGBTIQ, the post became controversial with some Ghanaians accusing him of forcing western culture on Ghanaians.

Gregory had shared a post of a local Australian police station celebrating what is known as ‘Wear It Purple Day’, a celebratory day for LGBTIQ people.

Though most of his Facebook posts have been commended by Ghanaians, this one had the opposite reaction.

Mention LGBTIQ in Ghana and all sense of logic goes out the window.

However, not everyone was against the High Commissioner’s post.

Most of the critics forgot that though a lot of Ghanaians follow his page, a lot of Australians do to and not every post on that page must bee regarded as a message to the Ghanaian followers.
