The architect of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s national cathedral, Sir David Adjaye of Britain, has called for LGBTQ rights to be respected in Ghana at all costs.
Adjaye was one of over 60 British celebrities with Ghanaian origins who signed a letter calling for the rights of Ghana’s LGBT community to be respected.
As we reported Monday, the group called for Ghanaians to stop violence and intolerance against the LGBTQ community and instead accept them into our hearts.
Accepting the rights of this marginalized community would make Ghana a far greater and stronger nation, the letter said.
“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.
Celebs who signed the letter included famous actor Idris Elba, supermodel Naomi Campbell and British Vogue editor Edward Enninful.
It has now emerged that Adjaye, who designed and leads construction of the much talked about National Cathedral which Ghanaians think would make them the most religious nation on earth, was a signatory to the letter.
That is definitely going to cause wahala for confused Ghanaians – should they go into a cathedral built by a man known to be campaigning for sin, as they claim?
