Renowned Journalist and former Metro TV Anchor Admits He is Gay


Ignatius Annor, a former Metro TV news anchor and activist for Lesbian,Gay Bisexuals,Transgender and Queer Individuals [LGBTQI+]Community has surprisingly admitted he is gay.

He currently works for Africanews as a journalist after leaving Metro TV. He had previously denied his sexuality openly on a TV programme Restoration hosted by Stacy Amoateng.

He admitted denying it because he did not have the courage to own up to the truth that he belonged to the LGBTQI+ community for fear of losing his job as a media personality.

Shocking: Top Ghanaian Pastors Sleep With Young Gay Man Who Needed Help

I want to say this on 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 had 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 is going to be the very first time that i’m using your medium to say that not only i’m i an activist for the right of Africa’s sexual minorities, what you call the LGBTQI+ community but i’m also a gay and that is the truth that i have accepted it and that is the truth i live by. Because i was ousted as a gay person obviously i denied it because i was afraid of losing my job. i was working at an incredible television station in Accra and also for the fear of what will happen to me personally. he added.

The journalist confessed this secret to an interview on JoyNews MP Express on Monday, February 22,2021
