Stop discriminating and screen male blood donors equally

GLAAD started this petition to The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and

The FDA recently announced that gay and bisexual men might finally be allowed to donate blood after being banned for life since the ‘80s — but only if they are celibate for one year.

So straight guys can have safe sex with woman after woman and still donate blood. But gay and bi men who have safe sex for an entire year – even with a monogamous partner – would still be banned. Sounds like discrimination to us.

We want the FDA to screen all prospective blood donors based on risk, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
