Anti-gay threats, attacks disrupt AIDS fight in Sierra Leone

Until they had to flee the country to save their lives, George Freeman, Denzil Kargbo and Ephraim Bernard Wilson worked to halt the spread of AIDS in Sierra Leone.\n\nThey worked for years to educate LGBT people in Sierra Leone about the dangers of HIV / AIDS, but they had to stop that work when newspapers published their pictures and labeled them as homosexuals. Freeman was ambushed in his car by men on motorbikes who tried to kill him.
