Prior to August of 2023, LGTBQ+ individuals were prohibited from donating blood. However, per the United States Food and Drug Administration update in August, members of the LGBTQ+ community are now eligible to donate.
The American Red Cross and US Bank encourage members of the LGBTQ+ community to participate – and for all community members to be take part.
Statement from American Red Cross
Blood donation is now more inclusive for the LGBTQ+ community
On August 7, 2023, the American Red Cross implemented the FDA’s updated final guidance regarding an individual donor assessment for all blood donors regardless of gender or sexual orientation. This change eliminated previous FDA eligibility criteria based on sexual orientation. The Red Cross celebrates this significant progress and also recognizes there is more work to be done to make blood donation even more inclusive.
