While the Ghanaian Christian community and clergy are busy kicking against the covert LGBTQA attempt to promote its activities in Ghana, the architect who designed the Christian community’s revered but contentious National Cathedral is a strong advocate for Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders, Queers and Intersexuals (LGBTQI) activities.
David Adjaye is the key architect contracted by the Akufo Addo administration to design the contentious National Cathedral for Ghanaians Christians, but Sir David Adjaye has declared support for LGBTQs activities in Ghana despite strong opposition to that prospect by Christians and the clergy in the country.
Sir David Adjaye joined a list of top United Kingdom celebrities who penned down a letter meant to mount pressure on President Akufo Addo to adopt same-sex marriages and activities in Ghana.
“We have watched with profound concern as you (gays) have had to question the safety of your vital work at the LGBT+ Rights Ghana Centre in Accra, and feared for your personal wellbeing and security. It is unacceptable to us that you feel unsafe,” the letter featuring David Adjaye reads..
“As prominent and powerful advocates for this great country, we are beseeching His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and political/cultural leaders to create a pathway for allyship, protection and support. We petition for inclusivity which will make the nation even greater and even stronger,” the UK celebrities wrote.
Meanwhile, the National Cathedral which has received widespread condemnation will cost over US$100 million to construct and the Akufo Addo administration has vowed to push it through despite the dire economic straits facing Ghana amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
