Google has made Blued, the world's largest gay dating app, unavailable for the Indonesian version of its online Play Store in response to Indonesian government's demands, Jakarta's communications ministry spokesman Noor Iza confirmed on Wednesday.
"There was some negative content related to pornography inside the application…. Probably one or some members of the application put the pornographic content inside," Iza said as quoted by AFP.
LGBT applications ban comes amid an increasing hostility towards the minority in the country. Although same-sex relationships are now permitted by law in Indonesia, the country's parliament is already debating an amendment which could illegalize gay sex and sex outside marriage.
