Ban on gays donating blood lifted in Argentina

A ban on homosexual men donating blood was lifted in Argentina, joining others in the region, including Cuba, Chile, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru, which have ended similar restrictions in recent yearsA ban on homosexual men donating blood was lifted Wednesday in Argentina, a move the gay community had long demanded. At a signing ceremony for the resolutions lifting the ban, Health Minister Daniel Gollan said, “For a long time, people believed that homosexual relationships were more risky than heterosexual relationships” in terms of contracting HIV, a perception that had led to the initial ban. “It is a great joy to be able to take this step toward equality and non-discrimination in one of the last realms that explicitly excluded us from the full enjoyment of our rights,” Esteban Paulon, president of the Argentine Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender, said in a statement.
