The allegations that the rights of the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana are under threat have gotten the attentions of prominent entertainers and public figures, Idris Elba, Naomi Campbell, Vogue editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, amongst others.

The respected celebrities and public figures totalling 67 have joined forces together to support Ghana’s LGBTQ+ community by reaching out to the country’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo, and other key political players in the country in an open letter, imploring them to protect the LGBTQ+ community.

The letter read; “We have watched with profound concern, as you have had to question the safety of your vital work at the LGBT+ Rights Ghana Centre in Accra, and feared for your personal wellbeing and security. It is unacceptable to us that you feel unsafe”.

It also added that; “As prominent and powerful advocates for this great country, we are beseeching His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and political/cultural leaders to create a pathway for allyship, protection and support. We petition for inclusivity which will make the nation even greater and even stronger”.
