The filmmaker behind the forthcoming documentary "Second Class Citizens" is offering another sneak peek at the project with his latest video.
Ryan James Yezak, who is organizing the National Gay Blood Drive on July 12, takes a look at the history of the ban on gay blood donors in this new clip.
"The ban is outdated, and as a result, countless otherwise eligible gay and bisexual men are unable to contribute to the nation’s blood supply and help save live," Yezak said in a press release about the upcoming blood drive. "Especially a time when blood shortages are increasingly common. Not only that, but the ban perpetuates negative stereotypes and stigma. Whether intentional or not, it is discrimination based on sexual orientation.”
