Abstract

The transgender issue in Indonesia is get quite attention, in this article focuses on the existence of transgender in cultural and legal viewpoint. In answering the problem by using historical approach as well as statute approach. Transgender that are more commonly known as "bencong" or "waria" in the community began to be known along the formation of trender, lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGBT) organizations in the late 1960s. Even if you look at the history since pre-Islamic times, gender crossers have been known. Transgender is very close to Indonesia culture. They have fairly central role, in art activities such as "ludruk", " rateb sedate dance", in the religious ritual "bissu" in Sulawesi. And some art symbols today, transgender do not take much role in culture. Recognition as culture part is not directly proportional to the existing positive law. In the positive law there is no third gender. Although LGBT organizations ask the government to give recognition to the third gender as in Thailand. Even if they have rights, but constitutionally the right as part of state giving, it can be because they are citizens.
