Lukas said, the interruption acknowledge homosexuality as a mental decision from the World Health Organization (WHO) on 17 May 1990 and is listed in the MOH RI Guideline Diagnosis and classification Disorders Life in India 1983 edition II (II PPDGJ) and PPDGJ III (1993 ).

"So is that gay orientation does not meet the criteria of mental disturbance or mental illness," he said.

He explains homosexuality, bisexualities and heterosexuality now classified as part of someone's identity. "Self-identity is characteristics typical of someone such as your name, age, sex, including sexual orientation (heterosexual, bisexual, gay). The identity needs to be distinguished with the behavior, because the identity needs to be neutral and accepted as such, but the behavior can be positive, negative, neutral, and others. So do not identity with the behavior, "he said.

"Efforts to empathic are the ability to understand and put them self in their place the marginalized need to be developed. Homophobia attitude that set aside, harassment, discrimination and the treatment of violence in the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) must be removed. This is need socialized in the community, "he explained.

The founder of the Foundation of Gaya Nusantara Dede Oetomo, not all religions and belief systems forbid homosexuality and transgender.
