Indonesia’s parliament is considering national legislation that would ban LGBT content from television by the end of the year, according to Reuters.
The draft law, seen by Reuters, would ban “lesbian, homosexual, bisexual and transgender behavior” from broadcasts and adverts.
“LGBT is not criminal, but if it enters the public sphere, if it’s broadcast to the public, then of course it must be regulated,” a member of parliament involved in drafting the law named Bobby Rizaldi, told Reuters.
Another MP, Hanafi Rais, said “LGBT is an abnormality.”
The move is the latest in a slew of anti-LGBT moves from the Indonesian government as the nation moves further towards conservative Islam.
Last week, Indonesian police detained 51 people at a gay sauna, in May they detained over 100.
