His name popped up on the list of influential people who wrote to Ghana that LGBT rights should be legalised.
“We have watched with profound concern as you have had to question the safety of your vital work at the LGBT+ Rights Ghana Centre in Accra, and feared for your personal wellbeing and security. It is unacceptable to us that you feel unsafe,” the letter addressed to Ghana’s LGBT community said.
“As prominent and powerful advocates for this great country, we are beseeching His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and political/cultural leaders to create a pathway for allyship, protection and support. We petition for inclusivity which will make the nation even greater and even stronger,” it added.
Some notable celebs who signed the letter included renowned model Naomi Campbell, actor Idris Elba, among others.
Yeah, aside Idris Elba and Naomi Campbell signing this letter, Sir David Adjaye also did.
Yes, Sir Adjaye, the very one building the National Cathedral!
Isn't this just refreshing?😂😂😂 https://t.co/0Dc7IvqFxC
