Indonesia doubles down on move to ban homosexuality
Indonesia doubles down on move to ban homosexuality and send ‘offenders’ to ‘rehab’ clinics.
Indonesia is proposing legislation that would force LGBT+ people into treatment to “cure” their sexuality or gender identity.
The “Family Resilience Bill” would force LGBT+ people into government-sanctioned “rehabilitation centres”, which would give religiously based “treatment” for being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
The law would also mean that family members of LGBT+ people would be compelled to report them to authorities if they didn’t voluntarily submit to treatment.
