Fact Sheet: Escalating violence based on SOGIE in Indonesia
The situation of LGBT people in Indonesia escalated to a dangerous point, with increased persecution expected to come as the country approaches the elections. As part of our ongoing response, ASEAN SOGIE Caucus has produced this fact sheet on Escalating violence based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression (SOGIE) in Indonesia. It provides an overview of the situation faced by LGBT persons in the country amidst increasing violence and hate perpetrated both by state and non-state actors. Through this fact sheet, we hope to encourage fellow human rights defenders, peace advocates and humanitarian agencies in developing of advocacy plans and crisis response during this critical moment for the human rights of LGBT people in Indonesia.
