As it has been in the new of Ghana for the past weeks, the LGBTQI office in Kwabenya, a Suburb of Accra has been a hot trending issue as Ghanaians have been torn apart as to whether they should be allowed to operate or the office should be close down to prevent further operations of these people.
Yesterday Ghana police were at the office to close the place down to prevent further operations of the LGBTQI people.
TV3’s Stanley Nii Blewu who witnessed the closure of the office reported that the land lord of the building had said the occupants were no longer using the office for the original purpose of which they rented it.
This comes after the Director of LGBTQI+ Rights in Ghana, Alex Kofi Donkor, has asked Ghanaians to look at issues relating to LGBTQI, as human rights issues.
Explaining the reasons behind the setup of an LGBTQI office in Ghana, he said “We created an office space where we can talk about issues which affect us as community and ways in which we can resolve the issues.

“When this violence is perpetrated against such people it goes unattended to, people do that with impunity.
