Ghanaian open transgender musician and LGBTQ+ activist, Angel Maxine, says she will reveal a list of Ghanaian politicians who are involved in LGBTQ+ activities if the anti-LGBTQ+ bill is passed.
Her threat follows the recent comment by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban S.K. Bagbin that the anti-LGBTQ+ bill will definitely be passed before Parliament goes on recess for the Christmas break.
In a video posted on Instagram, Angel Maxine listed a number of shortcomings by some Parliamentarians, who are championing the passing of the bill.
She said she has a list of all MPs who are involved LGBTQ+ if they go ahead to pass the bill she will release the list.
According to her, these MPs have done absolutely nothing for their constituents, but are, however, focusing their energy on criminalising LGBTQ+ activities in Ghana.
“President Nana Akufo-Addo, check the Jubilee House well if there are no LGBTQ+ people working there. All you these so-called politicians, you drive your cars, go and park at Labone secondary school, PRESEC, UPS, and your pimps will arrange the boys and bring them to you. They are people’s kids, yet their parents are on social media attacking queer people. Do you think we don’t know? People you have abused, people you have molested, people who are hurt, everything is on this paper and they’re ready to talk,” she alleged.
“Pass the bill and I will show you your MPs who are LGBTQ+. Do you think I have not seen gay politicians? All the MPs who have been texting people to get them boys to sleep with. All of the politicians who have been begging pimps to hook them up with boys. All your chats and conversations are here (points to a pile of documents). Pass the bill and I will expose your family members and children who are queer people. All those queer celebrities, also cannot speak for themselves,” she added.
The “Wo Fie” singer further chided her fellow members of the LGBTQ+ community to stop hiding behind their phones and come out and fight for their rights to live peacefully in Ghana.
“LGBTQ society in Ghana what are you doing, always writing proposals. Proposals for what? This is the time to come out and fight. Don’t sit behind phones and tweet and text. This is why you receive funds from the donors. Come out and fight the community and not hide,” she added.
