Watch: Female Queer Activists in Indonesia

Not Only Voices interviews Mita and Igna, both involved in campaigning for gender and sexuality issues. 

In this interview conducted by Not Only Voices, they speak to Mita, a queer activist from Yogyakarta, Indonesia who works at an anarcho-feminist collective called Needle N’Biotch, and Igna who works as a freelancer on gender and sexuality issues.

They talk about how LGBTI identities have been present in Indonesia way before the Western colonization and their experience on how traditional gender roles and heteronormativity may impact the perspectives of some LGBTI persons and contribute to violence among same-sex partners in Indonesia.

Much respect for the work that these two are doing during a very difficult time. Indonesia is a wonderful country - and the people of Jogja are especially gracious (most of them). Good luck to all who are fighting for education and inclusivity there! (I had the pleasure of screening films with the Q Film Fest, and at a special Jogja screening.)
