Originally published by LGBT+ Liberal Democrats
Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats, has tabled a parlimentary bill that would end the ban on blood donations from men who have sex with men. Talking about the bill, he said "The current law which bars sexually active gay men is scientifically and socially outdated, deeply and unjustly stigmatising, and urgently needs to change. In 2016 I cannot see why we can't support an evidence based approach. I hope my bill today is another stage in the long running campaign to deliver equality."
