This proposal has already been written on British/Ghanaian identity. However, I want the paper to be edited to reflect the title “The adventure of British/Ghanaian Identity and the LGBTQ Community: a sociological exploration of culture, belonging and social mobility through a qualitative, case-study approach”
This dissertation will explore what it means to be a Ghanaian/British and a member of the LGBTQ community. As the UK has adopted a more inclusive social policy to promote sexual diversity and to seek to protect lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, and the queer community, an age-long traditional culture and religious groups such as Christianity and Islam which are the two major religions in Ghana have continuously influenced state apparatus and institutions to introduce more hostile policies to oppress homosexuals. The recent introduction of the Proper human sexual and Ghanaian family values bill 2021 in the Parliament of Ghana by eight members of Parliament from both the ruling NPP and opposition NDC party led by honorable Sam George the MP for Ningo Prampram constituency which seeks to proscribe members of the same sex to engage in sexual activities has made it even worse for the LGBTQ community to identify themselves in Ghanaian social life as homosexuals. This research will inform policy and decision-making in Ghana to improve the lives of the LGBTQ community. It will form the first database onto which future research can be built to establish a framework definition of Ghanaian identity to identify with the LGBTQ community for business, political and social interactions. A documentary that enables the global community to understand all this from one reading would effectively promote international relations and a sense of belonging across nations and natives living outside their borders. The study will produce a documentary that explains the origins, development, current state, and projected futures of Ghanaian/British LGBTQ identity. International relations call for cultural competence which necessitates the need to develop an in-depth understanding of cultural, social, political, and physiological identities from sexual identity.
The research design methodology and methods will adopt an effective study of British/Ghanaian culture, identity, and socialism to investigate the impact of tradition, religion, and government policies on the lives of the LGBTQ community in both Ghana and Britain. The proposed study will employ a hybrid research design to facilitate comprehensive data collection. I will do a one-month ethnographic research study in Ghana during the Easter festivities to observe traditional celebrations. This means that I will be traveling to Ghana to study band with the indigenous groups with specific observation targets during the Easter festivities. A semi-structured interview of the Ghanaian LGBTQ community members living in Ghana and in London will help to compare and contrast lived experience to give a full account of the impact of both British and Ghanaian culture, identity, and socialism together with government policy on the lives of homosexuals. I will also interview a catholic priest and a traditional ruler in Ghana to ascertain their views on LGBTQ members and the famous anti-LGBTQ bill before the parliament of Ghana to investigate how religious and traditional beliefs impact government policies and decision making and what that means for the future of the LGBTQ community in Ghana.
This research looks at the impact of religion and traditional beliefs on government policies and the decision making process and how that affect the lives of the Ghanaian/British LGBTQ community. An ethnographic research study in Ghana during the Easter festivities will involve interviewing one traditional ruler or local chief, a catholic priest, and one member of the LGBTQ community whom I have established contacts within Ghana through a radio presenter friend who often hosts members of the LGBTQ group on his TV shows in Ghana. Back in the UK, I will also be interviewing a colleague friend of mine who happen to be gay and a former mate of mine during my undergraduate degree studies at Goldsmith who has also volunteered to share his lived experience of belonging to the Ghanaian/British LGBTQ community with me on this study.
The catholic priest and a traditional ruler to be interviewed to ascertain their views on LGBTQ members and the famous anti-LGBTQ bill before the parliament of Ghana are already people I know who have volunteered to participate in this study so there will be no need to worry about the involvement of gatekeepers.
The interview will take place at a time that is suitable for the interviewee and in a setting that is comfortable for them. I will start a free-flowing discussion on my topic and ask related questions whilst collecting my data. This will also allow me to go in-depth with the responses.
I have attached the main paper to be edited in the meantime
