Lesbian Meng Ru (L) drinks as she waits to give blood aboard a blood donation bus in Beijing on August 7, 2012. For the first time in 14 years lesbians in China are being allowed to give blood after the health ministry revised a regulation which previously prohibited all homosexuals from donating. State media reported that the ammendment aims to address a lack of donated blood in China, adding that the government regulations still prohibit homosexual men, drug users and people with multiple sexual partners from doing so.
