Updated: Feb 3

Championing LGBTQ+ Rights and Blood Donation Advocacy

Jordan's journey into activism began when he faced discrimination as a young adult, denied the opportunity to donate blood due to his sexuality. In response, he founded "Blood is Blood," an advocacy group on a mission to challenge discriminatory blood donation policies. His efforts led to significant change, prompting the FDA to revise their once-indefinite deferral to a 12-month and then 3-month deferral. Through "Pride Alliance Blood Drives," Jordan has saved over 1,000 lives and advocated for the removal of discriminatory regulations against LGBTQ+ blood donors. His commitment to making a positive impact has garnered attention nationally, including an appearance on the Drew Barrymore Show.

Spreading Positivity Online During Quarantine

During quarantine, Jordan utilized TikTok to create a safe and supportive space for the LGBTQIA+ community, fostering fun and self-expression during challenging times.


Jordan's "Good Deeds Buffalo" TV Show served as the foundation for the "Good Deeds America" movement. The Buffalo program featured 29 episodes that showcased local acts of kindness, community projects, and positive stories. During their journey, they collaborated with several notable figures, including actress Drew Barrymore, who supported the movement. Drew even called Jordan "her hero" and said that he "inspired her." Good Deeds America is an extension of this initiative, to highlight and celebrate similar acts of kindness and positivity from across the country. It is heartening to see how a small-scale effort can grow into a national movement with such a positive impact.
