In an exclusive interview, a homosexual man known only as “Queue” has opened up about his sexuality and his plans for the future.
While there is ongoing conversation about the treatment of LGBTQ+ individuals in Ghana, Queue has revealed that he may eventually get married to a woman, simply to conform to society’s expectations.
Queue expressed that despite his attraction to men, he might marry a woman to meet societal expectations.
He said, “A typical example, if I’m to marry in Africa, I will definitely marry a woman… I’ll still do men even in the absence of my wife; in secrecy, I’ll still do men, which I don’t think is fair to anyone’s daughter.”
While he admits to being attracted to men, he also shared that he has had sexual encounters with many married men.
I will get married, but secretly still do men’ – Homosexual opens up
Queue emphasized that their wives do not know about their double lives, and he would not want to cause such pain to anyone, saying “So, I’d not like to put your sister or anyone through such; I’d rather live my truth.”
Queue’s story highlights the complexities that many individuals face when it comes to their sexuality in Ghana.
While there are ongoing conversations about the rights of LGBTQ+ people, there is still a significant amount of stigma and discrimination faced by those who identify as such.
It’s important to note that sexual orientation is not a choice and is not something that can be changed.
While it’s understandable that some individuals may feel pressure to conform to societal norms, it’s crucial that they do not engage in activities that could harm themselves or others.
The LGBTQ+ community deserves to live in a world where they can be accepted and celebrated for who they are.
Ghana, like many other countries, still has a long way to go in terms of inclusivity and acceptance, but hopefully, stories like Queue’s will help to spark meaningful conversations and ultimately lead to positive change.
