Yesterday, October 23, Ghanaians in the United Kingdom held a second protest march aimed at urging the government to kill the far-reaching anti-LGBTQ bill currently in parliament.
The bill, which is supposedly aimed at protecting Ghanaian family values, takes a direct aim at people who identify as either lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning (LGBTQ).
Among other things such as the propagation of conversion therapy, the bill also provides jail terms for people who identify as a member of the LGBTQ community, anyone who provides service to any member of the community or even advocates for or on behalf of members of the LGBTQ community.
If this is passed, even this article will be illegal as it involves sharing information about a pro-LGBTQ protest.
The bill has been described as the most anti-LGBTQ bill in the world.
Amidst chanting and speeches, the protesters who gathered at the Ghanaian High Commission in London, want Members of Parliament to reject the bill, hence the slogan turned hashtag, #KillTheBill.
The protest was both online and offline as some of the protesters took to Twitter to amplify their message.
The bill is said to be up for debate on the floor of Parliament in November as the Parliament is still accepting memos about the bill from the general public.
