    Okay, so I have a gay friend whom Im in regular contact with, thing is that he's in GA and im in MA. Last night I called him to chat and he informed me that he had been raped the previous night. He was out with some friends at a club, cant remember much about the night, but he woke up in a friends house alone and sore. Are there any hotlines or websites that I can pass on to him? Ive given the advice of going to a doctor and or the police, cant give much else at the moment =\

    I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

    Do a google search for gay rape hotline

    There is a ton of information with toll free numbers.

    Are you sure it was rape? Sorry for doubting your friend, but I know a *lot* of guys that wake up the morning after going out to bars in strange places, and have no idea how they got there, much less who got them there... and it was voluntary when it happened.

    <edit> That said, yes, there are quite a few resources if you search for "gay rape help" on Google, IIRC. I'd also recommend that he get himself to a doctor, to get as many tests/meds as the doctor feels appropriate.

    If he isn't sure if it was protected sex, he can get the wonder drug to make sure he doesn't contract HIV. No, really...but he only has 3 days to get it in his system, so he should go to a doctor like now.

    If I am not mistaken, it is a cocktail of the drugs they currently use to treat HIV patients.....

    Right, a super cocktail. It makes you fell like shit for a couple days, but it's your best bet in a bad situation. Like when I was at a night club in DC, and a bartender drugged a friend and my drinks. I was told by several people that they saw a very slutty CoCo doing several slutty things. I had no recollection.

    Wonder drugs to the rescue! Clean bill of health, which is nothing but luck because I could have contracted all kinds of shit and the wonder drug only works on HIV.

    He didnt state, but I do know that he frequents a place called The Red Chair or something like that, its a gay club (atlanta area) that hosts a contest called Drag Idol. Ill try to find out and fill in the blanks.

    OK. He went to a club called Blakes, went to the doctors on wed to get a checkup. Said they found a bruise on his hip but it could be from anything. He's going to get his results back on sat. Hoping for the best.
