China’s Wang Zizheng Sues For the Right to Save People’s Lives With His Blood

In the U.S., the strategy of eliminating the FDA’s ban on gay men donating blood has been a failed lobbying effort to push the Dept. of Health and Human Services to lift the ban. In China, a new tactic: Suing.

Wang Zizheng (a pseudonym) is filing a lawsuit against a Beijing Red Cross donor center after it refused to accept his blood deposit because he’s gay. In China, gays and persons with multiple sex partners are prohibited from donating. Chinese state media, which says Zizheng’s claim is the first of its kind, quotes him, “For thousands of homosexuals in China, someone has to stand out.”

      Wow, that’s really cool. Some HIV- gay man (perhaps with a very rare blood type) should try doing that here.

      Brave and heroic, in a quiet everyday way.
