However, Bass hasn't been the only one to call out the ban. David Stacy of the Human Rights Campaign said: "The policy stigmatizes gay and bisexual men and simply cannot be justified in light of current scientific research and updated blood screening technology." "HRC is committed to working towards an eventual outcome that both minimizes risk to the blood supply and treats gay and bisexual men with the respect they deserve." YouTuber Elijah Daniel, who wrote a Donald Trump gay erotica novel, took to Twitter to write: "Really wish I could donate my gay blood".
How is it STILL illegal for gays to donate blood??!! I want to donate and I'm not allowed. 😤— Lance Bass (@LanceBass) October 3, 2017
Writer and LGBT activist Shane Bitney Crone also took to Twitter, writing: "It infuriates me that gay and bisexual men can be turned away from donating blood in Las Vegas because of the US FDA's discrimination policy."
