Indonesia is set to pass a law that will ban all LGBT characters from television shows.
The House of Representatives has agreed to pass the broadcasting bill, which includes a ban on any lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender "behaviour".
It would also prevent reporting on any gay rights issues.

"We can't allow LGBT behaviour on TV. It is against our culture," Supiadin Aries Saputra from the NasDem Party says.
"We have to ban it early before it becomes a lifestyle. It's dangerous and can ruin the morality of the younger generation."
All shows would need to be screened, including adverts and documentaries, to ensure compliance with the new bill.
"I am sure there are still more creative ways to entertain people [instead of showing LGBT behaviour]," Hanafi Rais from the National Mandate Party told The Post.
It is legal to be gay in Indonesia, apart from in the Aceh province. In May two men were publicly caned there for having sexual intercourse, under Islamic law.
