We believe that the lifetime ban on men who sleep with men from donating blood is fundamentally wrong. It feeds on stereotypes that men who sleep with men are promiscuous and careless. A straight man who has unprotected sex with a different girl every weekend can give blood TODAY whilst a man who had safe sex with another man 20 years ago is banned. The blood ban lumps together all gay men, without differentiation. There is a wide diversity of gay sexual behaviours and lifestyles as there are within hetrosexual men and women and the blanket ban does nopt recognise this.
