The examples in this study were 272 students of the Vocational School of the Bogor Agricultural University who had complete parents with a proportion of 182 women and 90 men. The sampling technique used in this research is purposive sampling. The correlation test results showed that the sex of students and family size were related to sexual orientation. G that parenting style on the dimensions of rejection and coercion is related to sexual orientation. In addition, peer attachment to the dimension of alienation relates to student sexual orientation.
