LGBTQ demonstrators of African and Caribbean descent marked Indigenous Peoples' Day and National Coming Out Day at a rally in Oakland to bring attention to Ghana's proposed draconian anti-LGBTQ bill.

More than 20 protesters chanted "kill the bill," "defend our rights," and "stand up and fight back!" while holding signs and handing out flyers to passersby to raise awareness about Ghana's Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values bill at Oakland's Lake Merritt Amphitheater October 11.

The demonstration was a solidarity protest — one was also held earlier in New York City — put together by some of the growing number of people speaking out around the world against Ghana's proposed anti-gay legislation.
