Hi ILGA,

I'm not gay nor have any gay friends or family members (not yet anyway), but I strongly support the equality of the LGBT just like heterosexual people.
Sadly in this country, persecution of openly LGBT people is an ongoing issue. Like yesterday the so-called Islam Defenders Front (FPI) halt a conference of LGBT in Surabaya. This is only one of dozens of similar or even more severe instances.
I'm not so sure when LGBT will receive the recognition they have achieved in some countries like Spain and Canada. Hopefully soon.
Peace.
