But there are supposed to be no gay people in Africa. :secret:

Don't know of any one in particular but -- if you're interested in tips on how to apply -- the official line is that there is no difference in the way the US government treats applications, regardless of the sexual orientation of the applicants. The reality is that it's tougher to produce evidence for gay relationships, especially when you're not married. It's unlikely the gay African has a Facebook status proclaiming a gay relationship, for example.

Just try to be creative in assembling the usual evidence, and include an explanation of why you can't supply more (discrimination, legal repercussions, etc). Back that up with newspaper clips documenting homophobia in Ghana; there's also this Pew Research study on global views of morality showing Ghana as the country that finds homosexuality most unacceptable among the 40 countries surveyed.


Best of luck.
