The fact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights are always hotly debated ahead of every general election is proof that this issue contains major political impact. Parties whose constituents are mostly homophobic are now competing to be the loudest voice supporting the Bill on Revisions to the Criminal Code (KUHP) providing penalties for those engaging in same-sex relationships. After National Mandate Party (PAN) Chair Zulkifli Hasan said five factions in the House of Representatives (DPR) acknowledged the presence of the LGBT community, representatives of the five parties quickly denied it, and instead pointed the finger at PAN, accusing its faction as not being serious about supporting the proposed legal punishments for LGBTs. Rather than defending its minority citizens, the DPR has now turned them into lepers to be kept at bay. The root of the problem lies in the view that homosexuals have contagious differences.
