Why the Canadian Blood Services blood ban is homophobic

Canadian Blood Services has a 3-month waiting period for men to donate blood if they’ve had sex with another man. It’s a policy based in homophobia. Here’s why.

For example, straight men can have sex with 90 women in 90 days and still give blood. Gay men can have sex with 1 man in 90 days, even one they’ve been married to for 30 years, and can’t give blood.
