Can this year just hurry up? I want to go on a cruise.
So the Canadian Blood Services are “lifting” the ban on gay men to donate blood, but is being replaced with a “five-year deferral period”. Meaning you can give blood if you’re a gay man, but only if you stop having sex for five years.
I guess it’s a step in the right direction, but it sounds to me like they are only doing this so it doesn’t sound so bad. “No, gay men CAN donate blood in Canada…… *mumbles fine print*”
