Did Lydia Forson Just Confirmed She's A Lesbian?

Ever since the president stated categorically in an interview with  International media, Al Jazeera that, legalization of homosexuality in Ghana is bound to happen many individuals have had  their say and the latest is 'loud mouthed' unpopular feminist and award winning Ghanaian actress. Lydia Forson.

Perhaps for the seek of this piece let me call her an 'attention seeker' because she's seeking one  this time. 

The actress who for sometime now hasn't been seen in our movies but for certain reasons best known to events organizers, keeps winning awards has written a keynote dubbed "The president on homosexuality he said what he said " defending the president for his stance on homosexual legalization.

I wouldn't like to argue her reasons because it's her opinion and I respect that much and secondly for sometime now I've been promoting equality of the girl child but there's a BUT.

Where has her morals been ?

Don't tell me you don't know or probably single life hasn't allowed her to be okay.

Lydia Forson is a Ghanaian born at Mankessim in the Central Region and therefore was brought up just like an average Ghanaian who was taught homos were enemies of the society and is a sin against God and a lot (I'm not here to repeat what you already know) so why all of a sudden jumping to the defence of these lesbos and gays?

Is she that politically brainwashed Ghanaian?

Just like many Ghanaians will do and few won't. Lydia drafting such long article because the president has been backlashed for his uncultured comment is making me believe her love for the elephant overshadows common sense. This remembers me of how Baba Jaman the unintelligent NDC communicator who told some members of his communication team to exaggerate whatever the government does citing example that should the government give out a sokoto red goat they should say the government gave out a white sheep. The cause of our woes is we sheepishly defend wrong doings of people who share the same political views with. Mr.president goofed and must be criticised

Is she unearthing her true colours?

Is Lydia a lesbian ? How long has she been doing such a thing?
The questions I began asking myself when i read the piece a graduate who claims to be all knowing penned down. I won't be bored if homosexuality is legalized but my simple but tough question is what good will it do us as a nation ? By age 11 I knew gays who lived in my community and shamefully hid it knowing it's sinful, so for a local A -list actress and producer, Lydia Forson  to be going around defending the act means finally she can campaign for gays rights and what she loves doing

Food is ready and I've to do justice to it if not that i can continue to give reasons upon reasons.

Read Lydia Forson's letter below

At the age of nine, she relocated from the United States to Ghana where she continued her formative education at Akosombo International School. She also attended St. Louis Secondary School, Kumasi where she completed her senior secondary school education.

See I’m going to keep this very simple because I know no matter how well I put this people are still going to find a reason to be offended.

There’s public outrage over an interview President Akufo-Addo granted in which he said that the conversation on the legalization of homosexuality was bound to happen. Read here Here

Now I understand your anger if this is a practice you’re against, especially if it’s one your religion forbids.

But the president response doesn’t in ANYWAY condone the act, in fact he maybe equally against it.

But he wasn’t voted into power to enforce his own personal beliefs on all of us, he was voted to represent ALL the citizens of the country irrespective of their beliefs and practices.
Which is why he gave an intellectual response, devoid of emotions to that question.

Because years in LAW school would have taught him about human rights and the realities of any minority group.

Legalization of anything doesn’t suggest that everyone agrees with it, it’s to protect the few who do; which is why there are still people in America against homosexuality and are free to be, so long as they don’t harm those who’re for it.

The law exist to protect ALL its citizens and not impose ones personal beliefs and views on another.

So the president’s response is what anyone who understands history, law and the realities of the world we live in today, would say.

History should teach us all that every minority, or group of people that feel oppressed, restricted etc will some day find their voice,strength and the balls to demand for equal treatment.

That’s just the way it is!





Black people.

Interracial couples.

At some point in our history these groups of people have been completely disregarded and some even KILLED for not being “normal”.

They’ve risen up and fought to be included.

The president didn’t condone homosexuality, he simply stated the FACT that at some point we’ll be forced to have this conversation, whether we want to or not; and it may not even be any time soon or even in our life time.

But we have to reach the mental capacity needed to have these debates.

Which is why I don’t think it’s fair to constantly pressurize African leaders to taking a stand on this.

Where we are now as a country, all these developed countries were several decades ago, so we shouldn’t be forced to run when we’re just learning how to WALK.

With that being said, your outrage isn’t going to change the fact that your friend,doctor,pastor (yep them too) lawyer etc is GAY.

Pretending they don’t exist doesn’t change the FACT that they do.
