Showbiz personality Michelle Diamond, popularly known as Michy, has questioned why some men are interested in men instead of women, when she added her voice to the same-sex debate in Ghana.
According to her, male-female relationships are sweeter.
In an interview on UTV’s Atuu, she raised concerns about the portrayal of LGBTQI+ themes in educational materials for kids and media.
She argued that divine creation involves an intimate connection between a man and a woman, emphasising that the essence of companionship and love is best fulfilled in such relationships.
“I was happy but you see no matter the laws it is in the education you give to the kids, we have a compilation or selection of Shakespeare books, summarised stories of Shakespeare’s books.
“Recently I asked him (her son) to read a book and come tell me the story later, he explained how a girl dressed like a boy and fell in love with another guy…and also how a boy wore female pants in a Shakespeare book.
“So, for the law, whatever they ban or prevent from happening is imprinted in the cartoons and the books. Can you cancel all those books?” she asked.
“I felt like the whites are grooming the next generation in certain ways, and I am not happy about it because creation didn’t talk about Adam and Adam, I believe that woman is sweet; Abeiku (host), so why would you go for the hard backside?” she added.
A number of Ghanaian celebrities are divided over a law against LGBTQI+. While some support it, others don’t. Musician Sister Deborah is one of those who don’t support the law against same-sex in Ghana, and she has since been fighting for it. But Michy thinks the law doesn’t even solve any problem as far as the comics and kids are concerned.
