Banned from Donating Blood

Banned from Donating Blood
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently bans any male donor who has had sex with another man from donating blood and bone marrow, regardless of the fact that all blood is tested for HIV/AIDS and that organizations such as the American Red Cross and the American Medical Association are calling to lift this ban. Additionally, the shortage of bone marrow donors affects minority communities disproportionally, and this ban impedes the chances of finding bone marrow matches.

GAPA urges the community to rally against this archaic ban and supports Mayor Evan Low's petition calling the FDA to change their position.
 

A Dragon Fruit Project: Intergenerational Celebration

A Dragon Fruit Project: Intergenerational Celebration


In two years time the Dragon Fruit Project has transformed the lack of accessible LGBTQ Asian Pacific Islander histories. Since 2012 the Dragon Fruit Project has worked to collect stories, transcribe audio, interview activists, and build community around deeper learning of selves and each other. Through this oral history work we are actively resisting the systems that have isolated us from each other and keep us out of mainstream present-day and historical narratives. Not only are we active agents archiving our individual histories, we are also piecing together organizational, community, and movement histories that will contextualize our collective narrative!
It's time to celebrate all of that work and support!


The Dragon Fruit project is currently being featured at the GLBT History Museum, as part of the API Exhibit! Our community has spent time, energy, and passion on this project, and we want to come together to celebrate our successes. We will have the time to reflect on what we've done, and look towards the future of our project. Whether you've been involved with Dragon Fruit in the past, or you're just now getting involved, join us for this chance to look back, move forward, and build community all at the same time.



What: Dragon Fruit Project Intergenerational Celebration
When: Tuesday, August 5th, 7pm-9pm
Where: GLBT History Museum, 4127 18th St. (in the Castro)

Note the Museum is ADA accessible.

If Interested, please submit an RSVP.

Scent/Fragrance Free Request: Please come scent free, to protect the health of all our community members, and to allow accessibility for those with MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities) and environmental illnesses. Here are some helpful resources for being fragrance free: http://www.eastbaymeditation.org/accessibility/fragrancefree.html! Today is a good time to wash the cute outfit you're planning on wearing in fragrance-free laundry detergent and to lay off scented products!
