  • Status is not correct "In serving the military and police being LGBTIQ person is not specifically illegal, however the rules that apply will use the justification of morality those are stipulated in the religious laws and local custom while being LGBTIQ is illegal in the particular religion and it often the high rank officers in these bodies will refer to the additional laws instead using Constitutional Law. Case reported a gay police man was fired due to his SOGIESC status. https://news.detik.com/berita/d-4553674/polri-soal-pemecatan-polisi-gay-anggota-polri-tak-boleh-lgbt"
