LGBT Community in Jakarta

Information on groups, social clubs and links for gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people in Jakarta...

Indonesia does not have specific laws about homosexuality as gays and lesbians are not recognised as having a legal existence under civil or religious laws, and there is no age of consent for homosexuals. However, there is an LGBT community in Indonesia, although it is discreet.
