Abstract

The issue of LGBT has been discussed by different experts and scholars from many perspectives and fields of study. However, these perspectives include only those which are considered scientific in nature while religion is always excluded from the discussion. This paper is a new perspective in understanding the issue of LGBT in the context of comparison between two religions namely Islam and Buddhism. Therefore, it will benefit the adherents of both religions in understanding issues related to LBGT from the perspective of their religious worldview and principles.
