Kundy (a pseudonym) is one of the most experienced LGBTI activists in Cameroon. At age 30+, he has had an impressive amount of experience protecting and advocating for LGBTI people in the country. He has spearheaded projects and surveys about the situation of LGBTI people in Cameroon and has represented the LGBTI community at regional conferences and at the African Commission for Human and Peoples’ Rights (Commission africaine des droits de l’Homme et des Peuples). He has repeatedly advocated for improved living conditions for vulnerable sexual minorities. The university never responded to the application, although he made inquiries about it several times over a three-year period. When he finally met with his academic adviser to find out what was going on, Kundy was told that the university does not promote homosexuality.
