A coalition of organizations that includes GLAAD and Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) launched a new PSA and social-media campaign starring Cabaret‘s Alan Cumming to raise awareness about the FDA’s blood donor deferral policy for men who have sex with men. #CelibacyChallenge urges the FDA to implement a blood donation system that screens all donors based on risk for HIV transmission, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. “Stereotypes have no place in saving lives,​” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “The FDA’s proposed change still means that countless gay and bisexual men will be turned away from blood banks simply because of who they are. GLAAD is proud to stand alongside GMHC and Saatchi & Saatchi NY to shed light on this important issue.”
