LGBT activists from central Italy's Jonathan organization want to sue a hospital which has banned gay and bisexual men from donating blood.
The Floraspe Renzetti hospital in the small city of Lanciano has issued a document listing new rules for blood donors. And donations are not allowed for those who have had ‘gay sex’.
The Italian law does not ban lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from giving blood. But, in the Mediterranean country, from north to south, some hospitals do not respect the law.
