    Forced exorcism is a common story for LGBT people in Indonesia, where a conservative shift has been occuring in recent years. It is still widely believed that being gay or transgender is the result of a person being possessed by evil spirits. Treatments range from being bombarded with Koranic verses while trapped in a locked room for days, to being doused with freezing water by an imam promising to purge the "gender disease". Now, conservative Islamic lawmakers have tabled a so-called "Family Resilience" bill. Gay and transgender people would be forced to undergo "rehabilitation" to purge what bill advocates say is a sexual deviancy.
