A Ghanaian woman has been molested after she was believed to be affiliated with the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana due to her sexuality.

According to sources, a group of miscreants deceived the lady identified as Princess Arthur into believing she was attending a community meeting and abused her physically and verbally.

Princess who is currently in a state of shock took to her social media pages to comment on the ordeal she has had to go through, posts that our reporters chanced upon.

The Parliament of Ghana in July this year unanimously passed an anti-gay bill that has been set to tighten laws against members of the LGBTQ+ community. Ghana’s 275 members of Parliament unanimously passed the bill, known as the 2021 Promotion of Appropriate Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill.

The bill was set to criminalize the promotion, advocacy, funding, and acts of homosexuality. It stiffens prison terms up to ten years in prison for LGBTQ+ advocates and three years for anyone identifying as such. 

Moreover, the bill seeks to withdraw health services from this community, including HIV medication

Many Ghanaians have suffered various forms of arrests and brutalities due to this bill and Princess recently became one of them.

Her social media posts read "I do not under why I can't feel safe in a country I live in, because of my sexuality. This is insane and I don't wish for anyone to go through what I've been through"
