The perception in Ghana that homosexuals and other forms of sexual orientations are unworthy of one’s consideration or respect was over the weekend reinforced after some angry Ghanaian youths stormed the premises of TV3 to stop them from airing an interview session of some members of the LGBT (lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender) community.
Berla Mundi in a pre-recorded video on her ‘The Day Show’, interviewed three members of the LBGT community namely Angela Nana Yaa Boateng (transgender), Moses K. Nana Bentil (gay ) and Akwesi Kardashian(gay).
The main show was aired on Saturday and whiles the show was ongoing, the angry youths who were clad in red, stormed the premises of TV3 to register their displeasure with the management of the station for giving audience to the group who many Ghanaians have vowed that they have no place in their society because the society or community have for a long time refused to accept them.
This information was shared by an employee of Media General on her Twitter platform.
She wrote: “A group of people actually stormed to TV3 this afternoon to demand that we go off air because we spoke about issues facing transgendered people.”
We understand TV3 has issued an apology for the said interview to calm the aggrieved youths.
