Stories of A Yogyakarta Activist for LGBT rights

Kosmopolis Institute welcomes summer school graduate and gay rights activist Lingga, an activist in the Indonesian city of Yogyakarta. In a society where religious fundamentalism and weak governance undermines the position of minorities, Lingga is actively advocating rights for LGBT (lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders), women, sex workers and other groups. On the 16th of October he will share some of his stories. He has experience as community strengthening officer, visual activist, workshop facilitator, advisor for various organisations and protest organizer. He has won an award for his blog and this summer, he published a book on sexuality, aimed at young Indonesian LGBTs.

UvH students, employees and other interested people are invited to come and listen to Lingga's stories on campaigning, dealing with violence and fundamentalists and the way forward.
