Campaign for queer through art

Vol 17 Jan-Dec 2012

In 2011-12, AWRC joined the campaign to raise awareness on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) communities in Jogjakarta.

AWRC coordinator Anna Marsiana felt it was time to build on previous AWRC discussions that queer issues have not been given much prominence in AWRC publications.

AWRC involvement ranged from joining and hosting small discussions on queer issues from political, legal, cultural, and theological perspectives to supporting an art performance by a group of lesbian artists. The campaign was conducted in TV talk shows and mini theatre.
