The Minister of Communications and Digitalization, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has opened up about her past life when she was way younger.
The Minister in an interview said she practiced ‘lesbianism’ known during her Secondary school days as ‘supi supi’.
Speaking on StarrChat on Wednesday, April 28, and as reported by Ghanaweb, the communication minister revealed that to her, that stage of her life was just a passing phase in which she had to explore her sexuality.
Her comment was in reaction to the LGBTQ+ issues that recently sparked a debate on all media stations.
Though, she got attracted to guys at that time, she wanted to have a feel of how it was to engage the same sex in such romantic mood.
“Most of us who went through the boarding system would have had some exposure particularly in girls’ schools and in some mixed schools as well with ‘supism’. We did it. I don’t make any apologies about it, but I like my men.”
She was however glad that during her days, there was no social media which would have made it very difficult to erase her past life.
“You’re exploring your sexuality, so you do all kinds of silly things growing up. Thank God there were no social media when we were growing up; you will leave a permanent record of some of these crazy things…”
