Red is in the Rainbow is still working hard to change the FDA policy that bans any man who has had sex with another man since 1977 from donating blood. Later this month, the US Department of Health and Human services will be meeting and discussing the regulation and its future. We anxiously await their decision.
In the mean time, we are still promoting our petition, which currently has 481 signatures. Our petition can be found at: http://www.change.org/petitions/red-is-in-the-rainbow
Our Twitter account and Facebook page consistently post facts and statistics related to the MSM blood ban as well as relevant news articles. Follow @redintherainbow to get these updates or like “Red is in the Rainbow” on Facebook.
Our informational video, located at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1E46mM3vfo&feature=player_embedded is a great way to learn the basics of the MSM blood ban.
We appreciate your ongoing support and hope that you continue to aid in the fight for fair blood regulations. Please share our resources with friends and family to promote equality for people of all sexual orientations!
