2021 has been a particularly rough year for Ghana’s LGBTQI people. Police raided and shut down Ghana’s first-ever queer community center in Accra; 21 people attending a paralegal workshop in the city of Ho were unlawfully arrested and detained for 21 days before the case was dropped; In July, eight members of parliament introduced the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021, which would proscribe and criminalize any advocacy of LGBT identity.


Despite the severe suppression, the LGBT community in Ghana is fighting back - with a #KilltheBill campaign.
