 UK Allows Sexually Active Gay Men to Donate Blood

In what’s being considered a major shift that’s designed to change dated blood donating policies dating back to the 1970s and 80s from the early days of the AIDS crisis, sexually active gay and bi men in the UK can now donate blood. We’re talking more than 40 years later. Up until recently, men who had sex with men were not allowed to donate blood at all. It was an “outright” ban. 

“This is such a fundamental change and victory,” Ethan Spibey, a blood donation advocate, said. “It’s a groundbreaking, pioneering new policy for gay and bi men in the U.K.”

Here’s the rest. It is a huge step forward in many respects. But there are still a few catches. And, there’s also been a blood shortage thanks to COVID-19 so they need our blood now more than ever. 

Frankly, I won’t be donating blood any time soon…like the next 40 years or so.

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
