The National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values is holding a gay “cure” therapy forum in Ghana. More than 400 people have signed up.
The Coalition’s leader Moses Foh-Amoaning said that the goal was to create “reformation” through “traditional medicine,” guidance by religious leaders, and help from medical staff. Ghana criminalizes homosexuality with a prison term of up to three years, but Foh-Amoaning wants the program to be mandatory for gay people under a to-be-pitched bill called “Who is on the Lord’s Side,” reported Pink News.
Foh-Amoaning and his Coalition have a history of anti-LGBT politics, campaigning against any organization that supports LGBT rights. He said in 2015 that churches would become “houses of God being ruled by evil homosexuals” if the clergy doesn’t begin a “blistering crusade” against the gay community.
Ghanaian President Nana-Akufo-Addo said earlier this year that he doesn’t intend on changing the country’s laws on homosexuality, despite his 2017 comment that the legalization was “bound to happen.”
