The fourth ILGA-Asia regional conference “LGBT Asia Moving Forward!” was scheduled in Surabaya, Indonesia, 26-28 March 2010. About 150 LGBTQI activists from all over Asia came to participate in this 3-day conference. Unfortunately, it was disbanded in the first day due to a combination of inaccurate media reports and participants safety being threatened by local Islamic fundamentalists.
