As the internet culture gained foothold in Indonesia during the late-90s, community members created their own website and blogs to network. By the early-00s, a growing number of message boards, websites, and personal blogs became the new place for Indonesian queer communities to interact and socialise with each others. As social media and dating apps became popular in the 2010s, these digital playgrounds are now largely abandoned.
