Ghanaian singer and model, Deborah Vanessa who is popularly known as Sister Derby is now on an advocacy streak for the legalization of LGBTQI in Ghana.
This advocacy done by Sister Derby comes after it was alleged that the European Union mission in Ghana had supported the establishment of an office in Accra and its commissioning.
Her outburst follows calls from several individuals and religious entities who have kicked against the opening of an LGBT office in the country adding that its presence disregards the cultural values and sanity of the country.

However, reacting to that situation, Sister Derby took to her Twitter handle in her bid to fight for the legalization of LGBTQI, she explained that the LGBTQI society are only seeking the protection of their rights by the state and nothing else.
According to her, some Ghanaians are also hypocrites who would shield family rape and rather come out and condemn LGBTQI members whom she labelled as not rapists.
“Bloodclarts, legalising #LGBTQI does not mean they are coming to molest or rape you like your uncles did while mothers protected them. That’s a crime. It means they will be protected from homophobes like you, so you can’t harm them! Let them be! Period!”
The Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference has called on both the Executive and Legislature not to give in to calls for the legalisation of homosexuality in Ghana since it is slowly gaining popularity.
Read Sister Derby’s tweet on social media that is gathering a lot of reactions.
