The Ozanne Foundation have issued the following statement in relation to the recent announcements from Ghana:

“We deplore the anti-LGBT+ proposals being considered by the Government in #Ghana, supported by local bishops. All #LGBT+ people are a precious part of God’s creation & must be free to live and love without fear.  We call for an immediate withdrawal of this homophobic legislation.”
