HOMOGLOBIN

Image_202009061655

We’re a nonprofit social welfare organization aiming to achieve equality for the LGBTQ community in
education and healthcare. Currently, many gay and bisexual men aren’t allowed to
donate blood, and our nation’s public-school system still routinely undervalues or
even ignores issues regarding the community, whether it’s history or family life
education. Our organization is lobbying policymakers and educating the public on
these issues, and we’ve been asking for help from people like you. I’d be
appreciative if you could volunteer some of your time in the future, or if you’ve got
a tight schedule, you may consider donating instead!

Our plan:

  1. Conduct research & develop a legislative agenda tailored to Washington State
  2. Identifying progressive policymakers, executives, and other government officials and coordinating with them to pass inclusive education & healthcare legislation
  3. Informing the public on issues
  4. Expanding our influence on social media platforms
  5. Reaching out to other media outlets
  6. Partnering with organizations that share our commitment to the LGBTQ+ Community
  7. Reaching out to young advocated by establishing a presence at college campuses & high schools

Mission Statement

The FDA says sexually active men who have sex with men (MSM)--along with women who have sex with MSM--must abstain from sex for 3 months in order to donate blood. This is essentially a blanket ban on all gay and bisexual men, which doesn’t take into account the fact that the LGBTQ community is comprised of millions of wildly different people, each with their own sexual practices. Changing this policy is just one of many steps our country and government must take in order to combat stigma and discrimination against the LGBTQ community, and we here at Homoglobin are fighting for that change.
