Andy Cohen Calls for Ending Blood Donations Ban for Gay and Bisexual Men



source

Cohen recovered from coronavirus but got rejected from donating antibodies due to the FDA’s donation restrictions for gay and bisexual men

“This virus is ravaging our planet. The FDA says there is an urgent need for plasma from survivors. All donated blood is screened for HIV, and a rapid HIV test can be done in 20 minutes or less. Why are members of my community being excluded from helping out when so many people are sick and dying? Maybe because we’re valuing stigma over science… My blood could save a life but instead it’s over here boiling.”
