Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, last month opened its first health clinic specifically for LGBT patients.

The Bali Medika Clinic is located in the city of Denpasar on the resort island of Bali. Since opening in early October, the center has treated nearly 100 patients -- Indonesia is currently dealing with a soaring HIV rate. Many gay men in Indonesia remain closeted, while transgender women, known as warias, are allowed more freedom and respect.
