Michelle is back with a solo episode all about non-binary concepts in traditional Ghanaian religions! She discusses how they manifest within the Ga, Dagomba, Ewe, Akan and Dagaara traditional belief systems. Michelle chats about the various Creators within the different ethnic groups, in particular Ataa Naa Nyongmo, Naawuni, Mawu, Onyankopong/Nyame/Asaase Yaa and Dagaara Gatekeepers.
She also talks about LGBTQIA+ rights in Ghana, the proposed bill that's been drafted to criminalize queer people and advocacy in Ghana, and #KilltheBill.
