Homophobia is still alive in Canada! Share your thoughts about the ban against MSM (men who have had sex with men) with the Canadian Blood Services and help end the ban.
Queerness isn’t defined by the degree in which you eschew heteronormativity (ooh, big words). In fact, I think one of the guiding principles of being queer is that anyone who thinks they’re queer is queer. Ta-da!

from BBC News:
From 7 November the ban is being lifted in England, Scotland and Wales. But men who want to donate must not have had sex with another man in the past 12 months.
This deferral period has been left in place because there is a “window period” after infection with blood-borne viruses where they are not detectable.
[…]By contrast, in the US, Canada, France and many other countries there is a complete ban on donations from men who have ever had sex with men.
While many folks regard the Dyke March as just another branch of the Pride tree, it’s worth noting that it has its own unique history, purpose and problems. So ditch your bra, grab your water gun and let’s take a hike down memory lane.
to anyone going to Toronto Pride, have fun, and stay safe!
