>  
> FDA regulations prohibit men who have been sexually active with another man in the past year from donating blood.  This exclusion extends to men who practice safe sex and men who are in a monogamous relationship.  This prohibition effectively bans most of the gay community from donating blood.
> 
> Given that the attack occurred in a gay nightclub and the victims were members of the GLBT community, the inability of gay men to donate blood makes this prohibition extremely painful.  The victims directly affected by this tragedy who are in need of lifesaving blood and their community are the very people banned from donating it.
>  
> I urge conference attendees who are eligible to donate blood to donate in our place.
