Sexuality is a private affair. Keep it so – Ursula advises


Sexuality is a private affair. Keep it so. Ursula advises the youth and the LGBT community.

The Communications and Digitalization Minister, Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has advised people who practice LGBT to keep it private as Ghanaians cannot be compelled to accept a practice which is culturally and socially abhorrent.

In an interview with Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr Fm, which was posted on her facebook page, she noted that Ghanaians are not expressive and do not fondle their partners in public.

“Adults can do whatever they like in the privacy of their homes but should not force their sexual preferences down anyone’s throat.”

She admitted that she is still friends with her first boyfriend and also stated that the practice of ‘supi’ was commonplace in many boarding schools during her time.

She said at that youthful stage of a girl’s life, there is the proclivity to explore one’s sexuality which is just a passing phase. It was also seen as a harmless adventure.

“You’re exploring your sexuality, so you do all kinds of silly things growing up. Thank God there was no social media when we were growing up to leave a permanent record of some of the crazy things we did…” she said.

She however charged the youth to grow out of the crazy things and be useful to the society.
