Homosexuality is not a crime in Indonesia, but a push by hardline Islamic extremists has led to the possibility of same-sex relations being outlawed as part of an amendment to the country’s penal code.
“Bagus” tells us his story of coming out, being shunned by his family, and the frustrations of not being able to express himself. The subject of LGBT rights is so taboo that none of the political candidates in the upcoming presidential election have raised it in their campaigns.
