        Abstract


        In English

        Indonesia known as a democratic country, but there are still many cases of intolerance, one of which is a large - scale intolerance towards minorities such as LGBTQ people. Indonesia still considered as one of the homophobic countries due to religious norms and rules that limit the movement of LGBTQ people. Indonesian society still lives in a social life that upholds the value of heteronormativity in which heterosexuals are normal people and others considered as abnormal. LGBTQ discrimination also occurs to many adolescents, they do not have free space

        in society and are even unable to be who they really are even between family and closest friends. Education regarding gender and sexuality is necessary in Indonesian higher education institutions to be able to provide broader education to the community, especially adolescents, which in the end expected to increase public tolerance towards LGBTQ people. This study uses descriptive qualitative method by also distributing questionnaires anonymously at random to several informants. In addition, supporting data from various literatures used to support this research. The results showed that many LGBTQ adolescents felt marginalized by their family

        and friends. They have not been able to show their sexual orientation without being afraid to get judgement from the public.

        In Indonesian

        Indonesia diketahui sebagai negara demokratis, namun masih banyak terhadap kasus intoleransi terutamanya intoleransi terhadap kaum minoritas seperti kaum LGBTQ. Indonesia juga masih tergolong kedalam negara yang belum berpihak sepenuhnya kepada kaum ini karena norma-norma agama beserta berbagai aturan yang membatasi ruang gerak kaum LGBTQ. Kehidupan sosial masyarakat Indonesia masih berpegang teguh pada konsep heteronomativitas dimana kaum hetero adalah “normal” sedangkan yang lainnya adalah “abnormal.” Diskriminasi terhadap kaum LGBTQ juga muncul diantara para remaja muda, tidak diterima oleh masyarakat dan bahkan tidak bisa menjadi diri mereka sendiri didepan teman dan keluarga sendiri. Pendidikan terkait gender dan seksualitas penting adanya di tingkat universitas di Indonesia untuk dapat memberikan pemahaman yang lebih luas kepada masyarakat, terutama kepada remaja muda, yang mana diharapkan pada akhirnya akan meningkatkan toleransi masyarakat terhadap kaum LGBTQ. Studi ini menggunakan metode deskriptif kualitatif dengan menyebarkan kuesioner (anonimus) kepada sejumlah informan. Data pendukung dari berbagai literatur juga digunakan dalam penelitian ini. Hasil menunjukkan bahwa banyak kaum remaja muda LGBTQ yang merasa termarjinalisasi dari keluarganya sendiri maupun teman-temannya. Mereka tidak dapat menunjukkan orientasi seksual mereka tanpa disertai rasa takut dari gunjingan publik.
