Alan Cumming Made A Great Fake PSA Ridiculing The FDA’s Rules On Gays Donating Blood!

Actor Alan Cumming stars in a fake public service announcement for GLAAD to try and get FDA rules on blood donors changed.

In the PSA, Cumming portrays the head of the fictional “Department of Sexual Abstinence” and explains that the latest FDA rules allow gay and bisexual men to donate blood but only if they have been celibate for 365 days.

Cumming gives some activities that you can use to pass the year long bout of abstinence and then explains you could also sign the GLAAD petition to get this rule changed.

“To help you abstain from any night temptation here some fully approved activities are guaranteed to make your year without sex bye bye. Take a pottery class, practice yoga, learn carpentry, join a Civil War Reenactment, clean your house, learn arts and crafts, practice for New Years or there’s another option sign our petition. Then share this Video to pressure the FDA to change its questionnaires so donors are screened based on your exposure to risk and not their sexual orientation. So no matter who you are you can save lives.”

You can go to www.celibacychallenge.com to sign the petition “to pressure the FDA to screen all prospective blood donors based on risk, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”
