Lift the ban on Gay men giving blood

This petition had 21 supporters

At the present time, gay men cannot give blood with out proving they have not had sexual contact for 12 months.  as soon as a gay male states they are gay they have to prove this even if they have never had sex.  Testing is something that can be done straight away now.  After the Orlando shooting gay men still could not give blood!  if a disaster like this happened in England this would also be the case. it is wrong. 

in 2011 there was a campaign to highlight the missing blood group, called missing letters. it targeted large companies.

 We would like to start a campaign where people that sign their names put in red any letter in your name that is A O B, this will highlight the need for everyone to be a blood donor
