#FreeThe21, New social media campaign trends in solidarity with LGBTQI community in Ghana

A new social media campaign with the hashtag #FreeThe21 has started on various social media platforms, chiefly, Twitter in the country.

The campaign which started early Monday morning is in solidarity with about 21 people who were rounded up by the Ghana Police Service over the weekend for unlawful assembly.

According to a statement by the Ghana Police after the arrest, the 21 are believed to be members and activists of the Lesbians Gays Bi-Sexual Transgender Queer (LGBTQ) community in Ghana.

But the arrest which was effected on Friday, 20th May 2021 at the Nurses and Midwives Hotel in Ho has angered the larger LGBTQI community on social media.

Whiles many describe the move as unprofessional on the side of the country’s security agency, others are lashing out at the government for failing to protect the fundamental human rights of the members of the community.
