Currently the policy is to ask those in groups shown to have a particularly high risk of carrying blood-borne viruses not to give blood. This includes men who have ever had sex with men, with this exclusion resting on specific sexual behaviour (such as oral or anal sex between men) rather than sexuality.
There is, therefore, no exclusion of gay men who have never had sex with a man, nor of women who have sex with women.
We, the undersigned call on the National health service and the prime minister to allow Gay men and Woman to be allowed to donate blood.
We understand that this will be on a periodic review.
The Allow Gay Men and Woman to donate blood petition to Prime Minister was written by Stuart Walker and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition.
