NORTHERN IRELAND: An insulting lifetime ban on gay men donating blood in the six counties was lifted yesterday.
Stormont Health Minister Michelle O’Neill’s decision came after a long campaign by gay rights activists and a series of court battles.
A similar ban in Britain was replaced in 2011 with rules that allowed gay men to give blood 12 months after their last sexual encounter with another man. Northern Ireland has now adopted the same policy.
