Lengger Lanang is a Banyumas folk art that has recently been revived and has been
welcomed by the local population. The man is dressed like a woman and dances
accompanied by Gamelan or Karon. This typical Banyumas dance is performed by
men who totally transform into women when performing the dance. Some of the
dancers are still male, live like men, and even have children and wives. However,
there are also transgender people. This study uses qualitative research methods with
data collection techniques used in this study are observation, interviews and
documentation and literature used as a study to reinforce the results of interviews.
The data validity technique used source tringulation. The result of this research is
that there is discrimination experienced by lengger lanang dancers because they are
considered as transgender or LGBT people and are considered as an association that
carries out forbidden movements that use make-up and clothing like women when
performing. The view that men must appear to bring out their masculinity will
influence the successor's interest in the lengger lanang dance.
