The first Queer Sarawejo Festival was held on September 24th, 2008. It included exhibitions, performances, public discussions, and films. The opening at the gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts was attacked and left eight people injured, forcing the organisers, a non-governmental organization Organization Q, to close the rest of the festival to the public and to eventually cancel the whole event. ”Kill the Gays“ was written on their signage. People that wanted to participate in the opening were verbally attacked and beaten up. Following the riots the festival organisers announced to the public that the originally 5 day long planned festival would not be able to continue due to the assailments.
