We're facing a severe, national blood shortage right now due to the COVID-19 emergency. Yet, gay and bisexual men (and other men who have sex with men) are not able to donate blood just because they are LGBTQ+ and haven't been celibate for a year.
But sexually active straight people can donate blood right now.
The FDA's policy is not based on science and it needs to end. At a time when we are facing a global crisis, the FDA should change this irrational and discriminatory policy.
Allow Blood Donations from the LGBTQ+ Community!
