The discussion on the practice of homosexuality in the country in recent times has become a topical issue in the media. There have been varied views expressed by people of various statuses in the country.

The debate appears to be far from over any time soon. Homosexuals as we know are people who have sexual affections for people of the same sex.

The numerous write ups on the practice in the news papers and panel discussions on radio stations and other sections of the media in the country have been fascinating, interesting, intriguing as well as informative and educative.

The practice of homosexuality has been an old age phenomenon. Ideas however, have been divided on whether homosexuals in the country have rights under the supreme laws of the country and whether is a crime or not.

In some countries where the practice is prevalent, it is stated very clear in their laws without any ambiguity the extent of acceptance of the practice or otherwise. The same cannot be said of Ghana.

The Supreme Court has just ruled that gay marriage is legal nationwide, in a huge victory for gay-rights advocates just a little over a decade after Massachusetts became the first state to legalize gay marriage.

Justice Anthony Kennedy issued the 5-4 ruling, finding that the Fourteenth Amendment — which guarantees "equal protection under the law" and the right to "due process of law" — requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex.
