Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender behavior, or commonly known as LGBT, is a social phenomenon that is highlighted by many people at national and international levels. The problem is if the Indonesian people do not reach the same agreement on the position of LGBT people in this country for human rights reasons (HAM). Human rights are essentially aimed at developing conditions conducive to the implementation of human rights under Pancasila, the 1945 Constitution and the United Nations Charter on Human Rights. The purpose of this study is to provide answers and describe how LGBT behavior is troubling for the Indonesian people and the international community in general. In addition, it will also be examined how national human rights and international human rights regarding LGBT behavior are reviewed. The method used in this study is sociological legal research, in which law is viewed as an empirical social phenomenon, using primary data from interviews with MUI, ICMI and Komnas HAM as well as secondary data from the Human Rights Act number 39 from 1999, Komnas HAM Handbook, Human Rights Declaration and UNDP Handbook (United Nations Development Program). In this way, LGBT behavior cannot be justified because there is no legality, violates decency norms and has the potential to cause unrest in society. This meant that what was prescribed in the constitution of the Republic of Indonesia in 1945 could not be achieved, namely to create order and security for the Indonesian people. And according to the International Human Rights itself, LGBT behavior is not recognized because there is no legalization of LGBT in the Declaration of Human Rights and only men and women are mentioned as partners.
