Thomas Buxereau has launched a petition so he and other gay, bi and trans Australians can give blood and save lives. Join others who want a safer, less discriminatory and more abundant blood supply through individual risk assessment.
All reforms to blood donor policy are initiated by the Red Cross Lifeblood Service. Write and explain why you want a new policy that screens all donors instead of excluding gay men, bi men and trans women who have sex with men.
All changes to blood donor rules are approved by the federal health minister. Use our template to write urging the health minister and assistant health minister to approve a policy that will mean more safe blood for those in need.
