Sitting in a circle with several other young men in a charity's offices in Cameroon's capital, Fleur listens intently to the speaker talk about gay sex before slowly raising his hand. "Can we catch AIDS by swallowing sperm?" he asks, prompting laughter from his peers at the group discussion held by Alcondoms, an organisation promoting the rights and health of LGBTI people. Yet HIV and homosexuality are no laughing matter for men like Fleur in a country where being gay is illegal and LGBTI activists face rising hostility and violence.
