Police Raid Home of Suspected Lesbians in Bogor, Indonesia

Homosexuality is not illegal in Indonesia, but homophobic attitudes have been rising, further marginalizing LGBT.

Indonesian police raided a rented home in Bogor’s Tugujaya Village on Saturday after locals complained of 12 suspected lesbians living there.

Although the 12 women were not detained, the raid prompted the women to leave, according to local media.

The head of the village, Sugandi Sigit, said the people of Tugujaya were disturbed by the presence of the supposed same-sex couples.

“People are restless with the presence of LGBT, Tugujaya Village must be clean of LGBT no matter what, so we did a sweeping,” Sugandi told Tribunnews Bogor on Sunday.

Local media covered the raid extensively and printed a number of pictures showing the women’s faces.

People need to rise up and oppose this disturbing actions of the law enforcement in Indonesia. People can stop these attacks on LGBT and "supposed individuals" if they join together and change the laws and educate.

I think if 12 people were sharing a house normally meant for 4..... well, is their sexuality really the only reason to want to move them on?

Gay shop lifters should be idolized however. The rest, hanged.

Gay men marriage and equality do not against any religion while women equality against Islam and christian.
Women equality right can be include as criminal penalties and corruption based on such religions/hollybook.
But Preachers hide that verses or do not blow up the verses.
now we can see the Preacher behavior.

Even Sodomy is not gay fuck gay but Heterosexual act disturb/violent gays

If you do not read hollybooks by your own then the preacher would do misleading speech.

But now, we can not always believe in hollybook/religions, at past and future, Hollybooks of some religions will always become tools for hatred and legalizing violence.

perhaps, people in peace now if you are in unconsciousness, but the opportunities using hollybooks to legalizing terror /violence/imperialism/rejection in many forms that you realize or not, will always be opened for future or can be activated in future.
As Religions leader said that Religion / preaching is politics
