Canadian Blood Services IS LGBTI-PHOBIC!!

Can anyone give me an update on the Canadian Blood Services rejecting blood donors who are in a monogamous same-gender relationship? I found out that one public school in North-end Oshawa Ontario, denied students who are in "same-gender" relationship. Does Canadian Blood Services not know that sex, gender and sexuality are separate identity categories that are always in flux and mutually constituted?

Can anyone update me? I am pisssssssssed.


actively and responsively,
