Depok to Issue anti-LGBT Regulation

 | 
11/16/2018

The administration of Depok in West Java says it is committed to preparing a regulation to curb a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) movement that the administration believes is becoming more rampant in the area. “[We will make it] to overcome this social deviancy. This mayoral regulation will be an effective regulatory step to block the LGBT [community],” Depok Mayor Mohammad Idris said on Friday, as quoted by antaranews.com. However, he said drafting such a regulation required a legal basis from the government. Once the government has issued a clear regulation on the LGBT community, the Depok administration will immediately issue its mayoral regulation. “It will be pointless challenging our regulation if there is already a government regulation on it. At least there should be a presidential regulation that can be the legal basis for the regional regulation of LGBT,” he said.
