Today the role of media is so important in the process of disseminating information. The increasingly rapid development of media provides easy access for the society. Media in conveying information has a strategy in leading public opinion; this strategy is called framing. Framing is the way the media packs information on an event that occurs in accordance with what the media wants, such as reporting on deviant sexual orientation (lesbian). News reportedly can be framed and constructed in such a way without caring for the truth of the information. The purpose of this paper is to present an analysis of the impact media framing about lesbians who can affect one's judgment about an event through the news displayed by the media, thus impacting on a person's decision making, mindset, attitudes and behaviour towards sexual orientation (lesbian). Counselors as professionals have a role in helping individuals to be carry out preventive efforts related to media framing about lesbians to filter, re-examine information received, and foster a critical attitude in receiving information from the media.
