I have a little different perspective. My only child, Nathan, got one of those bad transfusions in the 1980s, during his treatment for Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, with which he was diagnosed at age 6. He beat the leukemia with chemotherapy, but the transfusion killed him in 1988 at age 12. He was the eighth case of pediatric AIDS in Houston, which had a large gay community even then.

I support lifting the ban and testing all the blood. Back then the blood banks were fighting tooth and nail against testing because it was expensive and time consuming; they had only ELISA and Western Blot tests at the time. Now the tests are fast, more accurate, and much less expensive. Let gay people donate.
