July 11, National Gay Blood Drive

Calling all Gay and Bisexual Men and their Allies to Buffalo’s first National Gay Blood Drive!

Hello all:

As you may know, the US Food and Drug Administration has a life-time ban on men who have had sex with men from donating blood. At the same time, there is a constant need for blood donations.

On July 11th, there will be a nationwide blood drive to bring attention to this problematic ban. and this year, for the first time, we will be holding a gay blood drive here in Buffalo. We ask gay and bisexual men to bring allies to donate in their place. The drive will be taking place on Friday, July 11, at the American Red Cross location on 786 Delaware Ave. in Buffalo. Attached please find an electronic poster with the event’s details. For more information about participating, volunteer, or to RSVP, please go to the drive’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/482218258575593/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming or e-mail Inbal Fischer at inbalfis@buffalo.edu.
