The year is 2019, and there is still a ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men and their partners (male, female, and non binary). Hundreds of people are turned away and are being asked to abstain from intimacy with their significant others.
For a whole year.
Even if they have tested NEGATIVE for HIV.
Please join the Old Dominion girls of Leather and Blood is Blood between July 1st and July 31st to help us save lives and change this arbitrary policy. If you are ineligible to donate blood because of your sexual orientation, please ask a friend to donate in your place. Then sign the Blood is Blood petition to let our government officials know that regulating sex practices is unfair and despotic.
Everyone should be given the opportunity to save a life.
#SleevesUp and help us reach our goal. Make and keep an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross.
