Support for equal rights for the LGBT community through mainstream media and pop culture has become increasingly widespread in the last few decades. Starting from films, music videos, TV series, and social media campaigns are also used as a means of voicing the importance of capturing LGBT issues as part of social inclusivity. The use of mainstream media and entertainment is not done without reason, this is done because the scope and reach of information dissemination in this way is able to reach a wider domain. So that countries that are not even familiar with LGBT issues can also be targeted by the campaign. Indonesia is one of the countries that still considers the LGBT phenomenon as a taboo issue to discuss, even on the more extreme side, the people consider this as something immoral. One of the harshest rejections was from the Muslim community, considering that Indonesia is a country with the largest Muslim population in the world and the LGBT phenomenon is considered incompatible with the theological teachings they adhere to. However, with the massive movement of constructing inclusive norms carried out by countries that have supported and legalized LGBT, the Indonesian LGBT community has begun to react and respond.
