Sexuality is private affair, Keep it so – Ursula to youth and LGBT community
The Minister of Communications and Digitalization, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has advised the LGBTQI community to keep it private as Ghanaians cannot be compelled to accept a practice which is culturally and socially abhorrent.
In a radio interview on Accra based Starr FM, she noted that Ghanaians are not expressive and do not fondle their partners in public.
Adults can do whatever they like in the privacy of their homes but should not force their sexual preferences down anyone’s throat, she noted.
She admitted that she is still friends with her first boyfriend and also stated that the practice of “supi” was commonplace in many boarding schools during her time.
She said at that youthful stage of a girl’s life, there is the proclivity to explore one’s sexuality which is just a passing phase. It was also seen as a harmless adventure.
“You’re exploring your sexuality, so you do all kinds of silly things growing up. Thank God there was no social media when we were growing up to leave a permanent record of some of the crazy things we did…” she said
She however charged the youth to grow out of the crazy things and be useful to the society.
