Former Metro TV Presenter and activists for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Individuals (LGBTQI) community Ignatius Annor has finally come out to disclose that he is a proud Gay.
The journalist once denied his sexuality on the Restoration Program which was hosted by the General Manager of Angel TV Stacy Amoateng claim he kept mute and denied it because of fear, he claim he didnt have the courage to own up to the truth that he was Gay for fear of Victimization.
According to him, he was scared of what might happen to him if he came out having witness how LGBTQI’s were treated in the country and also he did that to protect his job as a journalist
“I want to say this in record, I know for some people who are seeing me through this very line it might sound a bit contradictory and that is because in the past I has denied my truth and I had denied the fact that I was gay and I did that because of the fear of losing my career”
“So this id going to be the first time that am using your medium to say that not only am i an activist for the right of Africa’s sexual minorities, what you call the LGBT right community but I am gay and that is the truth that I have accepted and that is the truth I live by. Because I was ousted as a gay person and obviously I denied because I was afraid of losing my job. I was working at an incredible television station in Accra and also for fear of what will happen to me personally” he disclosed
