Sexual diversity" refers to the different possibilities of sexual orientation. This diversity is not recognised in all countries of the world.

How a society or culture expresses itself on sexual diversity and what standards it sets here can show how tolerant people are towards queers. In summary, the concept of sexual diversity shows the sum of sexual orientation possibilities - both in contact with others and with regard to one's own self.

Sounds a bit dry? Maybe. Strictly speaking, it is all the sexual (and legal) preferences that exist in a culture.

Of course, homosexuality, bi-sexuality and heterosexuality are particularly well known in this context.

Sexual diversity also plays an important role in today's world insofar as science (and of course the people concerned themselves) have found out that there is more to love than men and women. Accordingly, the concept of sexual diversity has been broadened. It now also refers, among other things, to the extent to which a person interprets himself or herself as a "man", "woman" or "diverse", for example.

The fact that sexual diversity offers the possibility of better orientation in today's world has helped to break through previous boundaries. Those who today are not classically gay, lesbian, bisexual or straight is so still has, for example, in the course of a classification in the Pansexuality, the opportunity to find your way around a little easier.

Since more and more research is being done in this exciting field and more and more people are being encouraged to take advantage of the possibilities of sexual diversity, it can be assumed that there will be more developments in the future. Those affected should be pleased. After all, it can strengthen the psyche and self-esteem to be able to place oneself in a "category" - if that is what is wanted at all.
