BEING LGBT IN ASIA: INDONESIA COUNTRY REPORT09 Jun 2014
Being LGBT in Asia: the Indonesia Country Report provides an overview of LGBT rights in Indonesia including the effects of laws, policies, culture and social attitudes, and religion, based on research, consultation and the National LGBT Community Dialogue that was held in Bali in June 2013.This overview is followed by an examination of the Indonesia experience of protecting the rights of LGBT people under seven different areas:employment and housing, education and young people, family affairs and social/cultural attitudes, media and ICT, law-human rights and politics, the special case of Aceh, and capacity of LGBT organizations, using the same methodology as described above. Case studies illustrating success or challenges are included in the relevant areas. The capacity of LGBT organizations was based on analysis of a participant survey as part of the Dialogue. The report contains findings and a list of recommendations and action points generated by the Dialogue.
In Indonesia, the grouping Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) includes a wide range of indigenous terms with various geographical and subcultural origins. This is defined further in the Acronyms section.
