Queer Indonesian social media personality, Key Ikeyda, sparked controversy after she revealed that she got married to her same-sex partner.

The Bigo Live star, who was born as a man, took to her Instagram to share a few posts of their recent solemnisation ceremony. The newlyweds were pictured showing off their wedding rings in one of the photos.

Amid all the warm congratulatory remarks, there were a few who spoke out against the marriage. In this case, most of them argued that Key’s actions were clearly against the Islamic teachings. A lot of the negative comments came from those within the highly-conservative circle.

In response to the massive backlash, the queer figure later took to her Instagram to shed some light on the controversy. According to Key, the wedding is considered an important moment for her and isn’t just for entertainment.

She clarified, “Honestly, I’m not like any other woman in the world, because I’m imperfect from birth. I’m trying my best to become a perfect woman in the eyes of God, my family, as well as my partner. My marriage is important to me and not a joke. Legal or not, it’s up to you guys to decide. I’m not stupid and I fully understand the rules.”

“If you don’t really know who I really am, give me a chance to prove to the Indonesian community and also to those who watched my video for a better understanding. Regardless of my past life, I’m now a respected lady,” Key further added.
