LGBT crackdown feared in Indonesia after 12 women evicted from home
from The Guardian
Twelve women have been evicted from their home in the conservative Indonesian province of West Java amid renewed fears of crackdown on sexual diversity. The group had been renting a shared house in the village of Tugu Jaya, where their cohabitation and "unfeminine" appearance had unsettled conservatives. Responding to a complaint from religious leaders and an Islamic youth group that the women's living arrangements was "against the teaching of Islam," police raided the women’s home last Saturday, giving them three days notice to leave.
