I am interested in laws and cases pertaining to adoption by gays, both internationally and domestically, specifically but not limited to laws in Washington state.
In the gay male community, how hard is it to date someone pretty handsome/cute (though not necessarily physically "ripped") if one is, say, 20-25 lbs overweight (so overweight, NOT "obese") and in his mid to late 20s? How far can intelligence and personality take you? Is it easier to have a relationship on these bases than a one-night stand? Are things relatively hopeless without losing weight?
Have you any personal recommendations for gay nightlife—particularly on a Thursday night—in Manchester, England? There are numerous clubs, pubs, and party nights abound, particularly in the gay village area, but I'm looking for particular favorites for a gay male traveler (40ish) visiting on a Thursday night who enjoys a good booty-shaking evening of dance and drink. (Favorite club nights in London, as an example, include G-A-Y at the Astoria.) What say you?

I've been single for 4 years. Why? What do I do now? [more inside]
For the last 5 years (age 18-23), I've identified myself as a gay man. Came out to my friends and family and was living okay. Now, for the last year, I've basically come to realize I'm not gay. I've lost all attraction to men and I kinda fell for a woman. I haven't talked to anyone about it (including "her"), and am now realizing I need to come out (er, again). Any ideas how to handle it with my friends, family, and "her"? I'd obviously like to minimize the humiliation, anger, hurt, etc.

So I think I went out and got myself a case of gonorrhea. (Just what I always wanted!) What are my treatment options for getting this taken care of ASAP? I understand that it can generally be handled with a course of antibiotics... but how can I best go about getting them? I don't have a regular doctor right now -- I've just made an appointment with a new doctor for the end of the month, but I'd prefer to get on top of this before then (since leaving it unattended for more than two weeks seems like a bad idea). I'm a gay guy in NYC, so advice specific to that milieu would be superb, but in the name of creating a valuable reference thread I'd be interested to see information aimed at less specific contexts as well.
