Last month, the U.S. Food and Drug Association (FDA) announced a change in its regulations to "ease" the decade-long ban on gay blood donations. Gay men are now allowed to give blood, provided they haven't had sex in the past 12 months, amongst other preposterous restrictions.
Now, some of us have been there and know what a dry spell feels like, but how realistic is it to ask gay men to be celibate for a year to let them donate blood? And why wouldn't the same rule apply to our hetero friends? That's the conundrum that Jake Wilson is tackling in his laugh-out-loud new PSA, "Sad Studs."
In this parody of Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar's "Bad Blood," cleverly directed by Wilson, Jeffery Self enlists a stellar cast including Drew Droege (famous for his Chloë Sevigny impersonations on YouTube), Looking's Matthew Risch (aka "Puff Daddy"), and a dozen of gorgeous hunks to help him get the message across.
Watch the video below, and write to the FDA to ask for an end to the ban here.
