 Blood Shortage Leads Lawmakers to Ask FDA to Lift 3-Month Celibacy Restrictions on Gay Men

I know a lot of people don’t realize that in order for gay and bisexual men to give blood they have to have been celibate for at least 3 months. But now, with a national blood shortage, 22 senators are asking the FDA to lift these antiquated and discriminatory restrictions that are causing a serious crisis in the nation’s blood supply. I personally needed transfusions at one time so I know how important it is to have blood readily available. The transfusions saved my life. 

“Any policy that continues to categorically single out the LGBTQ+ community is discriminatory and wrong. Given advances in blood screening and safety technology, a time-based policy for gay and bisexual men is not scientifically sound, continues to effectively exclude an entire group of people, and does not meet the urgent demands of the moment,” the group wrote.

Here’s more. As other countries continue to lift these discriminatory bans, the US really should get on board with this.
