93% of Ghanaians do not support same-sex marriage – Survey

Read Time:2 Minute, 38 Second

A survey conducted by the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) has shown that the majority of Ghanaians are opposed to same-sex relationships.

The survey which was released in July 2021 indicated that although the majority of Ghanaians are tolerant of persons from different ethnicities, only 7% are tolerant of persons of same-sex relationships.

“Overwhelming majorities of Ghanaians express tolerant attitudes toward people of different ethnicities (92%), different religions (91%), different political affiliations (90%), and different nationalities (74%). But fewer than one in 10 (7%) are tolerant toward people in same-sex relationships,” portions of the survey said.

The survey was released in the wake of the tabling of an anti-LGBTQI+ Bill before Parliament, via the Private Members Bill.

The bill seeks to officially criminalise LGBTQI+ activities and also ensure a 10-year jail term for such persons in Ghana.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-8515574234778572&output=html&h=280&adk=3409305064&adf=214915203&pi=t.aa~a.4124357630~i.9~rp.4&w=732&fwrn=4&fwrnh=100&lmt=1633436501&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=5241788814&tp=site_kit&psa=0&ad_type=text_image&format=732×280&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ghbase.com%2F93-of-ghanaians-do-not-support-same-sex-marriage-survey%2F&flash=0&fwr=0&pra=3&rh=183&rw=731&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=ChAI8O_vigYQzYC2p8ynvvgsEj0AE_z3dIVgyg3aQ3zrmP7aEaXCQVbmIQExHkAvNU50mweyPJpeNaCGyqXg3MdxXbom9SgwjqCfh_9QQolG&uach=WyJXaW5kb3dzIiwiMTAuMC4wIiwieDg2IiwiIiwiOTQuMC40NjA2LjYxIixbXSxudWxsLG51bGwsIjY0Il0.&tt_state=W3siaXNzdWVyT3JpZ2luIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly9hdHRlc3RhdGlvbi5hbmRyb2lkLmNvbSIsInN0YXRlIjo3fV0.&dt=1633436501823&bpp=6&bdt=1214&idt=6&shv=r20210929&mjsv=m202109290101&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3Deaab4517cc3436d1-22649dd754cb001f%3AT%3D1633436516%3ART%3D1633436516%3AS%3DALNI_MbIoyIZ6IVNnJyiVUFfgU0aQXvqaQ&prev_fmts=0x0%2C1180x280%2C732x183%2C732x280%2C334x250%2C334x250&nras=3&correlator=7659245609662&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1368618910.1633436499&ga_sid=1633436501&ga_hid=136950880&ga_fc=0&u_tz=480&u_his=19&u_h=768&u_w=1366&u_ah=728&u_aw=1366&u_cd=24&u_java=0&u_nplug=5&u_nmime=2&adx=118&ady=2536&biw=1349&bih=657&scr_x=0&scr_y=0&eid=21067496%2C31062930&oid=2&pvsid=1854104011215495&pem=575&ref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ghbase.com%2F&eae=0&fc=1408&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1366%2C0%2C1366%2C728%2C1366%2C657&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=128&bc=31&jar=2021-10-05-12&ifi=8&uci=a!8&btvi=3&fsb=1&xpc=8o35vFoNoS&p=https%3A//www.ghbase.com&dtd=133
