Former Lynx entertainment star Mildred Ashong, known professionally as Eazzy (baby), has come out boldly to support LGBT rights in Ghana.
Eazzy, speaking in an interview with Kastle Fm in Cape Coast, said as far as she’s concerned love knows no boundaries and everyone should be allowed to love whoever they want.
She should get ready for rampant attacks from Ghanaians following taking this position.
The issue of LGBT rights has become the biggest topic in Ghana in recent weeks.
Ghanaians have risen up in unified bigotry as they fight against any acceptance of the LGBT community in the country.
Some gay people have even been attacked!
In the midst of that homophobia, any public figure who has expressed support for homos*xuality has faced vicious attacks from Ghanaians – just ask Michael Essien.
Eazzy however is throwing her support behind equal rights and not the rest of the country who detest anything gay.
She said on Kastle Fm: “Oh me I believe that people should be free to do whatever they want to do and love whoever they want to love…I’m not so rigid when it comes to such issues because I’m a very free spirited person and I don’t hate anyone based on their s*xual choices, if that’s how you are, you can’t change it”
She added: “I think that human rights can also do something similar to make the people happy without affecting other people’s lives,”
Eazzy’s surprisingly enlightened comments are sure to turn Ghanaians on her – although as she’s not too much in the public eye these days perhaps she won’t suffer as much as Essien.
