Indonesia considers whether to make gay sex illegal in case brought by Islamic activists

Indonesia is considering whether to make gay sex a crime after accepting a judicial review petition from Islamic activists.

A group, the Family Love Alliance, is calling for the ‘crime’ to carry a prison sentence of up to 15 years.

The group says an existing law that criminalises sex between adults and minors of the same gender should be amended to also apply to sexual acts between adults of the same gender.
