It is only a small pink house in the middle of a quiet, secluded neighborhood in Depok, West Java. However, the house, currently under partial renovation, may well be the future haven for graying transgenders rejected by society.

Although the board in front of the house says Yulie Salon: Pria & Wanita (Yulie Beauty Salon for Ladies and Gents), the house presently serves as an administration office for the Indonesia Transgender Forum.

The forum’s chairperson, Yulianus Rettoblaut, 51, who is also the house owner for the past two years, told The Jakarta Post on Saturday that she had been working on a project to build a home for elderly transgenders, locally known as waria.
