Ghanaian fashion critic, Charlie Dior has indicated that he does not support the impending passage of the LGBTQI bill in Ghana.
Speaking in an interview with Sammy Kay, Charlie Dior stated that as human as he is, he loves everybody which includes gay people. Hence, finds it extremely disheartening how some Ghanaians are indifferent towards the gay community.
Some arguments against the LGBTQI+ bill in Ghana include concerns about cultural and religious beliefs. Claims that it goes against traditional values. As well as, fears about potential negative impacts on social norms and family structures.
But during the interview, Charlie Dior argued that the bill itself has some defects. And has not been thoroughly analysed by the Ghanaian public therefore the bandwagon support.
He said when the LGBTQI bill is passed in Ghana, it will infringe on individual rights and freedoms. Leading to accusations of discrimination and human rights violations.
Additionally, he indicated that the bill talks against unnaturally canal knowledge. A sexual practise he disclosed most Ghanaians are guilty of, regardless of whether being straight or not.
He clamoured for free society by indicating that as long as someones sexuality does not cause harm to anyone, then the society should just be tolerant.
Charlie Dior explained that instead of the victimisation of gays, there should be proper education on safe ways of engaging in sex which includes gay as well.
That notwithstanding, he encouraged the gay people to practise safe gay sex since there are lot safe ways out there.
