Oh, positive: Antiquated blood ban may soon face its letting

by Jeremy Hooper

Good news, gay men: We too might soon get access to the same juice and cookies that facilitators give those who do their vital civic duty. Oh, and to basic fairness as well:

The Food & Drug Administration is starting the review process intended to lead to an end to the policy prohibiting gay and bisexual men from donating blood, according to the Federal Register.

A notice published Thursday states the Department of Health & Human Services has scheduled a meeting next month of the Advisory Committee on Blood Safety & Availability to discuss the issue.

A positive. Though some will surely B negative.

Whatever. They cannot stop our equality. They cannot stop our hemoglobin.
