China lifts ban on lesbians giving blood

Hong Kong (CNN) -- The Chinese Ministry of Health has lifted a 14-year-old ban on lesbians donating blood in effect as of July 1. The ban still applies to men who are sexually active with other men, but celibate homosexuals are permitted to give blood, according to the Ministry of Health's website. The original ban, enacted in 1998, barred homosexuals of both genders from donating blood. - Molly Gray
