Closing LGBTQ Office Will Be Illegal- Lawyer Joyce Opoku Agyeman

A lawyer by name Joyce Opoku Agyeman has expressed her views on Ghanaians who are pleading to the government to shut down a nearly office for the LGBTQ.

According to her, it will be illegal to close down the office.

She argued that it will be an infringement on the rights of gay, lesbians and transgender people.

Speaking on Morning Starr a programme on Starr FM she said

“I don’t think it will be right for anyone to invade their office and attack them because they have not met to engage in any sexual activities. Every human being when you’re born has a fundamental right that no one can take away from you. But we have our norms and culture that frown upon certain things,” she told sit-in host of Morning Starr Lantam Papanko Thursday.

She explained: “If you are caught in the act of having unnatural carnal practice then that’s criminal but when someone expresses his/herself, that’s not criminal because the law is not against that. Assuming someone dresses like a female and you go and beat up the person, it’s a clear case of assault”. She argued
