The Iberoamerican Journal of Health and Citizenship/ Revista Iberoamericana de Salud y Ciudadanía is pleased to publish the third volume organized by Almudena Garcia Manso sociologist from the Rey Juan Carlos University, devoted to Sexuality (s) and Citizenship (s) two concepts that should be part of social development and education in a global and diverse world. It is for this reason that must be analyzed in a multidisciplinary way, hence they pretend to be approached from the health sciences, social sciences and gender studies all derivative social realities of both concepts and their contribution towards development and empowerment of civil rights of sexual and gender minorities.
They are concepts that have to do with the possibilities of progress, development and welfare in contemporary societies. Contemporaneities that far from having achieved levels of equality and parity for sexual diversity, have shaped disparate, diverse and complex social contexts in which equality is measured by the degree of socio-economic development of the individual, marginalized and disadvantaged cornering. The social reality in accelerated modernity, based on hyper-capitalist, is a social reality of disparities, differences and contradictions but lays the foundation for social development in health factors, education, citizenship and rights. A context which leaves no doubt about the situation of sexual diversity.
