Life satisfaction emphasizes the interaction between the individual and the society, and it encompasses how they integrate with groups such as religions. However, despite its apparent favorable impact of religiosity on a person's life, the idea of how it extends to the life of sexual minorities was not yet fully investigated. This idea prompted the analysis of whether life satisfaction among selected non-heterosexual orientations was correlated with religiosity. It was conducted through an online questionnaire form, which was responded to by 120 participants in their early adulthood who identified as homosexuals and bisexuals. The study's findings demonstrated that life satisfaction positively correlates with religiosity among the selected non-heterosexual samples. On the other hand, the analysis showed that the variables have an insignificant relationship among homosexual participants while posing a relationship among bisexual participants. As a result of evaluating the variables within the context of non-heterosexual orientations, this study adds to previous research. It acts as a means of raising awareness about this matter. Moreover, the results of the conducted study may have been affected by several constraints that the study faced during the pandemic. Religiosity is a factor that influences a person’s life satisfaction.
