“I’m Gay” : Ghanaian Journalist, Ignatius Annor Finally Comes Out On Live TV After Denying Being One For Years | WATCH

A Ghanaian journalist has finally come out as Gay on live TV after denying being one for years.

Mr. Ignatius Annor, a former Metro TV broadcast journalist, who now works with Euro News made the announcement in an interview with Joy News via Zoom on Monday, February, 22.

In the interview, he disclosed that the fear of losing his journalism career and the stigma around it were the reasons why he always denied it when confronted about his sexuality.

“This is going to be the very first time that I am using your medium to say that not only am I an activist for the rights of Africa’s sexual minorities, what you will call the LGBTQI community, but I am gay.

“Obviously, I denied it because I was afraid of losing my job, I was working at an incredible Television station in Accra and also for the fear of what would happen to me personally,” Mr Annor said on JoyNews via Zoom.

This comes after LGBT+ Rights Ghana both fundraised and built a new office, which serves as a crucial community centre for queer Ghanaians, sparking outrage in the country.

But the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values (NCPHSRFV), a coalition of various faith leaders and officials that once drew international outrage for running a camp that “treated for homosexuality” have called for its closure.

According to Mr. Annor, that would be a breach of their human rights.

“It doesn’t feel like I am a human being who deserves the right to employment, the right to education, and normally the basic rights to be able to walk, drive around to wherever that I want to go to in Ghana as an openly gay man. It doesn’t feel okay, it feels dehumanised and awful.”

He also recalls after returning to Ghana after studying for his Masters in the UK, to look for employment but none of the media houses were willing to hire him “just because of the stigma that surrounds my community”.

A delivery driver in Vietnam is being called a hero after he miraculously caught a toddler who fell from a 12th-floor balcony.

Nguyen Ngoc Manh, 31, was sitting in his truck, waiting to deliver a package to a residence in Hanoi on Sunday, Feb 28, when he heard a child crying and a woman screaming overhead.

He said that he initially brushed off the commotion as just a kid having a tantrum.

But when Manh noticed people on the street panicked and shouting, he rolled down his window and looked up. To his horror he saw a little girl dangling 164-feet in the air, VN Express International reported.

The heart-stopping moment was captured on video and shared on social media.

Manh, a father himself, immediately exited his truck. Trying to gauge where the girl may land, he climbed a 6-foot wall between where he was stopped and the apartment complex.

“I scaled the wall and saw that she could fall onto the metallic roof of the house used to store electric generators for the complex, so I tried to climb on top of it,” Manh told VN Express.

“I made it, but couldn’t stand firmly, as the roof was crooked.”

As the girl lost her grip on the balcony railing and started falling, Manh slipped. But he flung himself forward and caught the toddler.

She wasn’t crying, he said, but blood was dripping from her mouth.

“She looked so much like my child at home. I was so confused, only able to tell her, ‘Please, please, I’m here now,'” Manh told VN Express International.

The little girl was taken to a hospital, where doctors treated her for a dislocated hip, but said she had no other injuries.

Manh sprained his arm catching her.

Many on social media hailed Manh as a hero, but he told VN Express he doesn’t care for the label. He said he just wants to “do good.”
