Sierra Leone

On Oct. 5, 2004, Fanny Ann Eddy, a 30-year-old Sierra Leonean gay activist, was strangled to death by a mob of people who broke into her office. Earlier that year she spoke up for LGBT rights in her country at the United Nations, saying they faced "constant harassment and violence." (Photo: Courtesy of Sierra Leone Lesbian and Gay Association)
