Accra



Is this a good city for LGBT expatriates? Why or why not?

I wouldn't know. But if there is an LGBT scene here, it's very underground. - Aug 4, 2017
No, that is illegal and they publicly flog gay people. - Apr 6, 2017
It is still illegal to be gay here but I haven't heard of anyone getting harassed for it. - May 4, 2014
Homosexuality is technically illegal in Ghana. However, there seem to be no practical restrictions or problems in regard to this. - Apr 24, 2012
We have two gay couples at post presently and they are both integral parts of the community and very active. Ghana in general is very conservative and does not necessarily acknowlege or deal with homosexuality well. I would think discretion is the key. I have not heard of any instances of harassment. - Feb 24, 2010
Seems to be fine here, but not sure. - May 24, 2009
