Who are we ?
Let Us Give is a campaign to lift the current ban on blood donation by gay men, bisexual men, transgender women and some non-binary people who have sex with men.
Instead, we seek a new policy that screens all donors for their individual sexual safety.
Our goal is to save the lives of our fellow Australians through ensuring a greater supply of safe blood.
We also seek equality in blood donation by ensuring all potential donors are asked the same questions regarding sexual safety and are not discriminated against on the basis of the gender of their sexual partner.
Let us Give is auspiced by LGBTIQA+ advocacy organisation Just.Equal Australia.
