Wanluv Kubolor says he only speaks for members of the LBGTQ society because they are a marginalized group across Ghana and the world.
He claims that members have unduly been oppressed so much, especially in Ghana and in many cases their rights to socialize have been trampled upon.
According to Wanluv Kubolor, members of the LBGTQ society have every right to socialize like any other Ghanaian without being victimized or dehumanized in public.
Wanluv Kubolor was speaking over the weekend on the Entertainment Review programme on Peace FM which was monitored by a1radioonline.com.
The host of the programme, Kwesi Aboagye was interviewing the musician on his stance on the public discussions on the LBGTQ society in Ghana and why he agreed to perform at the opening of the LBGTQ office in Accra.
“I only speak for them because they are a marginalized group and most of dehumanized. In my view they have equal right to socialize like any other Ghanaians or group in Ghana and should not be victimized or discriminated against. My only interest is to get them to feel free to live their lives and also go about their daily activities without being afraid that they will be harassed and molested.”
During the official opening of the LBGTQ office in Accra, Wanluv Kubolor was invited to perform at the event, which has left many Ghanaians asking if he performed just as a musician or because he is a member of the LBGTQ society.
Wanluv in response said: “I was invited to perform like any event organizer will invite an artiste to perform at an event. I don’t need to be a member to perform at the event.”
Then the host of the programme asked Wanluv Kubolor: “are you gay?”
Wanluv answered: “I don’t get sexually attracted to males. When I am with a man, I don’t get sexual feelings to I take it that am not gay. I only speak for the LBGTQ society, just because they are a marginalized group; that’s all.”
On the issue of the laws of Ghana criminalizing unlawful carnal knowledge, Wanluv Kubolor said that section of the laws of Ghana should not be attributed to only members of the LBGTQ society, but also anyone who gets sexual satisfaction through other means.
“Don’t be quick to always link this to members of the LBGTQ society, men who do licking and women who do blowjob are equally guilty.” Wanluv said.
