‘Anti-sexual deviance propaganda’ bill mysteriously on priority list

 | 
01/18/2020

The massive 2019-2024 National Legislation Program (Prolegnas) set by the House of Representatives lists 248 bills, including four proposed omnibus laws, an ambitious undertaking considering that the previous House only managed to pass 91 out of the 189 bills in the 2014-2019 Prolegnas. One of the more curious entries on the list, which was approved at a plenary session of the House and signed by House Speaker Puan Maharani last month, is an “anti-sexual deviance propaganda” bill put at no. 74. The title of the bill echoes the country’s commonly spouted rhetoric against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, who are often accused of spreading “pro-LGBT propaganda” by conservatives.
