UNISLAMIC BEHAVIOR IS A SUBCULTURAL RESEARCH ABOUT TRANSGEDERISM IN ISLAM CULTURE, SPECIFICALLY IN INDONESIA, COUNTRY WITH ONE OF THE LARGEST MUSLIM POPULATION IN THE WORLD. DUE TO A STRICT SEGREGATION OF WOMAN AND MAN IN ISLAM, TRANSGENDER MUSLIMS (WARIAS) AREN'T OFFICIALLY ALLOWED TO ENTER MOSQUES. AS A RESULT OF PUBLIC INCOMPREHENSION, WARIAS CREATE THEIR OWN MOSQUES AND COMMUNITIES. MOST OF THE WARIAS AREN'T ABLE TO GET A DECENT JOB SO THEY EARN LIVING THROUGH PROSTITUTION AND STREET SINGING.

ALL THE RESEARCH IS DOCUMENTED IN THE PUBLICATION - UNISLAMIC BEHAVIOR --->
