Indonesia To Pass Law Banning All LGBT Characters On TV

Indonesia’s House of Representatives is set to pass a law that will ban all LGBT characters from television programs broadcast in the country, the Jakarta Post reports.

“We can’t allow LGBT behavior on TV. It is against our culture,” says NasDem Party representative Supiadin Aries Saputra. “We have to ban it early before it becomes a lifestyle. It’s dangerous and can ruin the morality of the younger generation.”

In compliance with the new broadcasting bill, all TV programs would need to be screened by a censorship bureau, including commercials and documentaries. This bill would also prevent news media from reporting on any LGBT rights issues.

      He’ll give them more this year – the rights of brown people far away don’t concern them, particularly when those rights are denied by those of a certain religion.
