We believe it is unjust to prohibit any man who has had sex with another man from donating blood. This discriminatory policy stigmatizes gay men and reinforces the stereotype that all gay men have HIV/AIDS. This ban should not be based on someone's sexual partner, but the risk of their behavior. A one year deferral period is sufficient for testing blood and maintaining safety.
