01/10/2023 | Deutsche Welle

The German government on Tuesday pledged to end discrimination against men or trans women who have sex with men and who wish to donate blood. German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach said that in the future gay blood donors would be assessed only on their individual risk behavior. “Whether one can be a blood donor is a question of risk behavior rather than sexual orientation,” Lauterbach said. “There must be no hidden discrimination on this issue either.”
