Komunitas LGBT (lesbian, gay, biseksual, transgender) adalah sekelompok orang yang terlibat dalam aktivitas seksual sesama jenis. Menyangkut soal agama, Indonesia masih menganggap LGBT sebagai sebuah dosa.Oleh karena itu, mereka tidak menyetujui pernikahan sesama jenis. Namun, perspektif ini saat ini masih dipertanyakan karena pada kenyataannya beberapa mulai berpikiran terbuka dan menerima keberadaan LGBT, bahkan ada beberapa yang terlibat dalam komunitas LGBT. Salah satunya adalah Gaya Nusantara yang digagas oleh gay Indonesia yang tinggal di Surabaya. Komunitas tersebut berfungsi sebagai forum bagi gay Indonesia untuk berbagi ide dan pengalaman yang bertujuan untuk mengaktualisasikan diri. Sehubungan dengan fenomena tersebut, studi ini diatur menggunakan penelitian studi kasus yang bertujuan untuk mengetahui perspektif pemuda Indonesia terhadap LGBT. Peneliti menggunakan kuesioner sebagai instrumen untuk mendapatkan data dengan 4 pertanyaan tertutup tentang perspektif pemuda. Subjek penelitian adalah 100 ratus pemuda dari 14 kota besar dan kota kecil di Indonesia. Signifikansi penelitian menginformasikan fenomena LGBT di kalangan pemuda untuk orang tua dan guru Indonesia sebagai seseorang yang bertanggung jawab dalam mendidik anak-anak agar mereka tidak dipengaruhi oleh fenomena sosial ini.
