The threat of criminal punishment of same-sex relationships has revived in Indonesia. Despite the remarkable improvements that were made in recent years, such as the Yogyakarta principles in 2007 and the organisation of the Jakarta Q-film festival, homophobia has been gradually observed throughout the country. The criminal punishment of both prostitution and homosexuality in the (Islamised) region of Aceh by virtue of local laws (perdas) and incidents such as the raid of a Jakarta gay sauna in late 2017 that resulted in several prosecutions demonstrate that the struggle for non-discrimination and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) communities is still ongoing in this extremely diverse country. The present paper discusses this situation, highlighting the need for Indonesia to comply with its human rights obligations.
