It’s ‘deviation’ and ‘mental disability’: Some Indonesian institutions put ban on LGBT applicants

11/18/2019 | Jakarta Post

Adding to the long list of prejudices faced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Indonesia, some government institutions are refusing to recruit those they say possess “deviations” of sexual orientation and behavior. November marks the opening of civil servant recruitment at 74 ministries and state agencies as well as 467 local administration offices across the county. While millions are expected to compete for more than 190,000 vacant posts, requirements set by some institutions might force potential LGBT job seekers to think twice before applying. From The Jakarta Post’s observations, at least two institutions have put forward a ban on LGBT applicants, namely the Trade Ministry and the Attorney General’s Office.
