Arguably one of the finest personalities to have ever graced the Ghanaian media space, Kwasi Kyei Darkwa (KKD) has asserted that it is stupid for members of the Ghanaian LGBTQ community to be hiding their sexual orientation from the public.
Speaking in an interview, the multiple award-winning broadcaster argued that there are lots of gays in Ghana but because of the laws of the land, they can’t come public with their sexual orientation.
KKD said, “There are people in Ghana who are gays. It is because of the law in Ghana that they hide. I think it is stupid that anybody living their truth must hide.
“I do not know (whether homosexual should be legalized). I haven’t given it any thought. I need to think about it. I don’t know enough about it. I have read about it just because my son came out to say he is gay.”
Despite not taking sides on the topic of whether the LGBTQ community in Ghana should be given rights to practice, KKD disclosed that “Everywhere I had worked, there were people who were gay.
“It didn’t bother me. It is a subject that baffles only those who wants to be baffled because there are people living with people who are gays and lesbians but do not know. People are condemning others for sins that they do not commit but they are committing worst sins than the ones they condemned,” he pointed out.
Widely known to be having a gay son, the renowned broadcaster and former employee of Citi FM argued that the upbringing and country play no role in an individual’s sexual orientation because there are people in Ghana who are also gay.
