Association of Defence of Homosexuals

ADEFHO was born from the initiative of Mrs. Alice Nkom who has gained worldwide recognition for her hard work in promoting the respect and protection of sexual minorities in her country since 2003. Mrs. Nkom (1945 -) studied Law at the University of Toulouse and at the Federal University of Cameroon and has defended the LGBT cause for over 10 years. During this period, Mrs. Nkom defended more than 30 cases of presumed homosexuality despite numerous death threats as well as being threatened with the end of her career as a lawyer.
