Sister Derby, a musician and LGBTQ+ activist, and Sam George, MP for Ningo-Prampram, have engaged in a twitter exchange following George’s support for a bill that seeks to criminalize LGBTQ+ activities in Ghana.
The bill since yesterday has got social media talking with some Ghanaians in support whule others disagree.
In a tweet, Sam George expressed contentment with the bill noting that he’s happy with the support it has received so far.
According to him, homosexuality is not a human right and cannot be entertained in Ghana.
However, Sister Derby, who is also a LGBTQ advocate, tweeted back, calling the legislator a backward thinker.
“You are only doing this to score political points forgetting the harm you are causing queer folk. Tell us what else you will personally gain from passing this bill if not political points??? Shame on you!” Sister Derby replied to Sam George’s tweet.
In another tweet, she wrote “You are rather full of perversion. So obsessed with people’s sexual orientation. Shame on you, you backward thinker!!!”
Hopefully, when you figure out what genre of music you can succeed at, we can have a forward looking conversation. Until then, say hi to @AmgMedikal for me. Cheers.🦁
