Abstract

The issues of LGBT in Indonesia produce two major groups of society, anti–LGBT groups and pro–LGBT groups. The former is usually positioned as the groups that in their social practices often dominate the later. They position themselves as the ones that have legitimate rights to control the LGBT people, so the dominated groups feel to be discriminated. The paper purposes to study the discourse produced by the dominant institutions in articulating their power against the LGBT issues. The research problems answered are (i) how the dominant groups practice their discourse againts LGBT issues and (ii) whether or not the discourses contain the practice of social wrong such as the power abuse and discrimination. The research data were taken from twenty texts of pro- and contra-LGBT downloaded from Kompas.com and Republika.co.id. The data are the utterances realizing the discourses against LGBT produced by people representing 18 institutions. Using the critical discourse analysis approach, I found that mostly, the text producers from the dominant group exploited lexico-grammatical expressions to oppose the LGBT communities. They used material, relational, and verbal processes to represent the negative activities and identities of LGBT commnity. They used certain vocabularies representing strong controls and hate attitudes. There are discourse articulating power abuse to control all aspects of LGBT community’s life, discrimination, and legitimation of power practices.
