Queer History #21: East Timor, the Youngest of All

A very brief walkthrough here. However this is bizarre:

The Church’s influence in East Timor has actually contributed to the promotion of homosexuality, principally among East Timorese men.

A blog for gay Timorese here. The cruising and happening site seems to be in Dili.

Though gay and lesbian couples are not acknowledged by the state, it is good to know for a start that homosexuality is not illegal. Here. A more comprehensive article on homosexuality in East Timor here.

However, it is also recorded that East Timor Red Cross has excluded homosexuals from HIV-AIDS Reduction Program. Article here.

*RAP’s posts on Queer History are expandable. There is so much we can find out hence if you have anything to add, please comment below or e-mail to us. Let the lists go on.
