LGBT activist Peter Tatchell partnered with advocacy group Screen the Blood to create a pseudo "gay detector" device called "the Gaydr." A wonderfully dry British officer scanned men on their way to a blood bank in central London and declared them 85 percent gay, 100 percent gay, or "the gayest" he's seen all day. All the discomfort of the participants leads them to a new understanding about the fact that if they were actually gay they would likely not be allowed to donate blood.
