Sexual diversity refers to the different sexual features, types of orientation or sexual identity. This diversity is present in nature in different species including the human being, expressing in different ways according to the cultures.
The discrimination and stigma associated to the different forms of expression of the human sexuality increase the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases; due to the fear for NOT having equal access to educational and health services.
Not all types of sexual relations have similar risk for acquiring HIV, because it is known that certain tissues of the human body are more likely to become infected by the virus. Non-protected sexual relations among men who have sex with men have the greater risk, while the transmission of the virus from men to women is 2 to 4 times more efficient that of woman to man.
The society must fight for the respect to the differences, in order to allow the integral development of each individual, where values such as tolerance, solidarity and social justice are a priority.
