On June 21, I was honored to join about one thousand fellow faith leaders in a private meeting with Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for President.

The FDA policy on blood donation is discouraging gay and bisexual men would-be donors. They aren't allowed to give blood if they have been with other men in the past 12 months.
