Communication on sexual issues in Vietnam is still cautious in the past due to the influence of social prejudices about homosexual people. However, in recent years, movies and gameshows about the third gender have been represented quite openly in the media. There are a number of studies on the LGBT community in Vietnam, but from a media and cultural perspective, there is still a gap. Using the method of library, observation and discourse analysis, this article explains the appeal of the game show "Who is single" on multi-platform television in the journey to overcome social prejudices of the LGBT community in Vietnam. The research results show that constructing discourse by positioning homosexuals as equal to other genders through a symbolic system and program structure has brought a different view of LGBT in a such society witnessing a lot of stigma against them as Vietnam.
