Ghana, a conservative religious and cultural country is largely anti-homosexual. Most Ghanaians proudly state that they detest homosexuals and continue to slam same-sex couples on social media.
However, two beautiful young Ghanaian lesbians-Ella and Sikel’s lovely same-sex relationship captured in a 3 minutes video has attracted less bashing than expected or the usual.

Dyno Dyno added: “Women are always like this when together. You can’t even tell the lesbians apart. Mtcheew. If it were men, nka the insults will flow pleeenty but somehow lesbianism is seen to be cool and even sexy. #boysabr3.”
Of course, the gay-hating idiots came out—and one even said he would rape the couple. JA Mal wrote: “I swear walahi anywhere any day I catch this girls I will rape them,make them jail me the way am lacking and suffering to get one girl in this modern Ghana and their here wasting them selfs and the Tonga.”
When it comes to Ghana, it’s not just the mindset of the people that drives the hatred against the LGBT community—there is an obsolete legislation on the statute books of Ghana that criminalizes “unnatural carnal knowledge”
The Human Rights Watch in a recent damning report on Ghana concluded that; “having a law on the books that criminalizes adult consensual same-sex conduct contributes to a climate in which LGBT people are frequently victims of violence and discrimination,”
