 The Yogyakarta Principles address a broad range of international human rights standards and their application to SOGI issues. On 10 Nov. 2017 a panel of experts published additional principles expanding on the original document reflecting developments in international human rights law and practice since the 2006 Principles, The Yogyakarta Principles plus 10. The new document also contains 111 ‘additional state obligations’, related to areas such as torture, asylum, privacy, health and the protection of human rights defenders. The full text of the Yogyakarta Principles and the Yogyakarta Principles plus 10 are available at: www.yogyakartaprinciples.org.
This comic is part of the project “Being Nonbinary in Indonesia – An Advocacy Project Through Comics” led by Erik Nadir under the APTN Amplifying Trans Advocacy Fellowship 2020. It draws from a focus group discussion held for non-binary individuals under the same project. Special thanks to Arin Shabrina and Sarah F. Hana for helping to facilitate and organise the discussion; to all the participants for sharing their experiences; and to the Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) for the support.
