End Discrimination – Reform Blood Donation Policies!
The United States does not allow men who have had sex with another man to donate blood. This policy is regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and bans gay and bisexual men (who have had sex at least once) from donating blood.
Despite recommendations from the American Red Cross, America’s Blood Centers and American Association of Blood Banks, the FDA has not overturned the ban.
This ban reinforces negative stereotypes and perpetuates harmful stigmas against gay and bisexual men. It is time for an end to such clear institutional discrimination, that focuses on character, rather than high risk sex practices. The United States should follow in the footsteps numerous other countries, such as Spain, Italy and France to overturn this ban immediately!
