Formal Starr FM newscaster Tawa Braimah confesses to be lesbian

Published

 It seem the war against the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, & Intersex (LGBTQI) community is not ending soon as a number of prominent individuals have stood up to show their strong support for the cause accompanied by some unsuspected revelations.

The new to join in the advocacy is a former Broadcast Journalist with Starr FM Tawakalitu Braimah who confessed being part of  LGBTQI community.

The confession of the female Ghanaian Journalist comes less than 24 hours after a similar declaration by Ignatius Annor a former broadcaster with Metro TV now with Euronews who says he is gay.

However since the debate of LGBTQI rights protection arose leading to the opening of a National Office of LGBTQI in Ghana, the Journalist has been advocating for freedom for LGBTQI groups.

On Tuesday, February 23, 2021, TawaKalitu Braimah posted on her Facebook page that the hostility of Ghanaian society against LGBTQI and family pressure kept her insane during her days in Ghana.

“Now more than ever, I am grateful for the community of like-minded people I am a part of. They’ve kept me sane these past couple of days, from screaming my voice hoarse at the sheer incredulity of some of the arguments being made on these streets”.

She continued “Not being liked is a huge risk that we take. Having family worry about how people will perceive us and by extension how our views reflect on them is another gamble. People will try to police what you say under the guise of concern but what they are doing is projecting their fears on you.

I choose humanity above all else because, at the end of the day, it’s the only way thing that truly connects us. Religions have and continue to evolve, cultures are adapting and assimilating every day, repressive and dehumanizing laws are being repealed and replaced by more progressive and inclusive ones.

We’re all just trying to make sense of our lives; of our purpose here on earth. We all have those days when we don’t feel like waking up, days we wish our chaotic brains will just be still for a while. We fall in and out of the existential crisis; “What’s the point of it all? Does any of this matter? Do I matter?”, we ask ourselves especially during these times. We’re consumed by anxiety, fear of the unknown.

These are things that we all share and for me, that’s all the reason I need to demand that we all deserve to be treated with respect and dignity no matter our differences. I don’t need to have the same experiences as you do to fight for your rights. I only need to be human to do that”

Close associates of the former Starr FM Newscaster say they are not surprised by the pronouncement of   TawaKalitu Braimah who is now studying in Europe on scholarship.

Published

on

Bill and Melinda Gates announced on Monday afternoon that they are ending their marriage after 27 years.

The pair made the announcement simultaneously with identical messages shared on their Twitter accounts. Melinda Gates also shared the news on Instagram 

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” read the statement. “Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and build a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives.”

“We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives,” continued the statement. “We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.”

Bill and Melinda French Gates met at a trade fair in New York and began dating in 1987, more than a decade after Bill Gates first founded Microsoft. The pair wed in 1994 , at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai in Hawaii.
In 1996, they welcomed their first child, Jennifer Katharine. That same year, Bill and Melinda Gates established the William H. Gates Foundation, which focuses on advancing global health using charitable donations from Microsoft.

They had their second child and first son, Rory John, in 1999. In 2002, their third child, Phoebe Adele, was born.

In 2000, the William H. Gates Foundation merged with another organization, the Gates Learning Foundation, to form the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Since 2000, the foundation has spent $53.8 billion and opened international offices all over the world to expand its outreach. In their statement, the couple said that the foundation would continue despite their separation.

In 2020, the foundation committed $1.75 billion to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, including to help with the development and distribution of tests, treatments and vaccines.
