Not sure if this belongs here.

I have read that the Indonesia Military is purging out gays. From my time in Indonesia it seemed to me that gays were tolerated. At least the effeminate bar tender/waiter in the company hotel. Everyone seemed to know which team he batted for.

Have things changed?

Secondary question. What is the Indonesia slang term for an effeminate or gay man.

I don't think they are particularly accepted. There is the common sort of verbal bashing and making light of that you hear in the States. You know, people calling each other gay as an insult.
The only gay people I have met are somewhat in the closet as well. "John" reckons his family is ashamed of him and that they are afraid of what will happen if people know. If your society makes you feel the need to hide who you are, you are not accepted.

I've never heard an Indonesian term for gay that sounded polite and positive, other than gay. Then again, my Indonesian isn't great and I haven't been that interested in the topic.

I'm pretty sure that how the cage is supposed to work is that you post things in that section of the forum, rather than here. But... I kinda have difficulties finding it as well.
