Indonesia accepts two UN recommendations for upholding LGBT rights, but seeks to outlaw their representation on television

Indonesia has accepted two recommendations made during its universal periodic review regarding LGBT rights. The recommendations pertain to ensuring a safe and enabling environment for all human rights defenders, and implementing freedom of expression, association, and assembly with an emphasis on non-discrimination, especially for LGBT people.

Yet, a proposed draft bill seeks to  outlaw the use of LGBT representation or characters on television The bill subjects every public broadcast on the subject to be approved by  an external censorship body and .If passed, such a law will drastically reduce reporting, documentaries, and films with any connection to LGBT subject matter.
