Annobil / Ghana
“My name is Annobil, am 41 years of age. When I was 8 years of age I used to play with the girls a lot, so due to that people started call me names like kojo besia (Man-Woman) then from there I decided to play with the boys at the age of 10 years because of stigma attached to me playing a lot with the girls. This time from there, guys never stopped, but rather forced myself been with them for more than two years.
One of the guys I play with approached me and started to have sexual contact. This continue until the age of 15 years. But that I never knew anything that I was doing. In the year 1992 I move to one of the town in central Ghana because then I leave in a village. From there I came to Accra the capital city of Ghana. Because my sexuality I move with a lot of MSM’s. Community I live in got to know what I do and attacked me. I went to a party on my return, Two guys within my community attacked me and beat me up because they think I am gay. I then move from that community because I don’t want to attack again.
I’ve do that too, one guy want my parent to disclose to them I am a gay. This guy tried to attack me whenever we meet for good Two year. Then I move again and change my contacts.”
