Leila Djansi Says Name Calling And Branding Won’t Stop Her From Defending The Oppressed Over Anti-LGBTQ Bill In Ghana

USA-based Ghanaian filmmaker, Leila Djansi has said name calling and branding won’t stop her from defending the oppressed over the Anti-LGBTQ bill in Ghana.

If enact, the Anti-LGBTQ law will criminalize activities of LGBTQ people in the country.

Not happy about how some people are against the LGBTQ community, Leila disclosed her readiness to defend and speak for them.

In her post seen by Newshuntermag.com, Leila Djansi stated that she will use her platform to defend these people.

She wrote on Facebook: “Monday morning and somewhere in Ghana, land of my parents, school kids are singing:

God bless our homeland Ghana

And make our nation great and strong

BOLD to defend forever 

The cause of Freedom and of Right.

Fill our hearts with true humility 

Make us cherish fearless honesty, 

And help us to resist oppressors’ rule 

With all our will and might evermore.

“Here’s to constantly using my voice and platform to defend and speak up for the oppressed. Bring on the name calling. I am made of strong stuff! No one will be killed, maimed, beaten or oppressed on my watch. When you choose to fight for what’s right and for the oppressed, people will call you names, brand you, abuse you… heck, they killed Jesus. They killed MLK, they distabilized Kwame Nkrumah, they imprisoned Nelson Mandela. But still, they thrived and today, we all reap the fruits of their sacrifice. Don’t sit on the sidelines if you can swing a sword on the battlefield. #onward!”
