Days with Nina Poster, illustration of two people standing outside a phone booth

Have you ever heard the sentiment that being gay is just a trend, or that it’s a product of “Western culture”? Deep down we all know that queer people have always been here, but have you ever wondered how it was like to be queer in 90s Indonesia? Inspired by the documents archived by Queer Indonesia Archive (, “Days of Nina” is a fictional scrapbook that tells the story of a lesbian couple who found each other through a queer magazine.
