I'm sure it was in F&SF Mag, perhaps 5 years back...it was a story about an antigay future US where all single citizens over age 28 had to register with the government, everyone had to be tested for "the gay gene," laws were passed against gay people, etc...and the main characters of the story were saving up to buy passage on a ship to a Mars colony where they would be free from antigay oppression. Please help, I can't remember the title and have looked thru so many issues my eyes can't focus! Any info appreciated. Thanks

If anyone is into war stories, "Graves", by Joe Haldeman, a short story which appeared in the Oct/Nov 1992 issue of F&SF, is hard to beat. If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend that you read it.
It was reprinted and also appeared in "The Best from Fantasy & Science Fiction: A 45th Anniversary Anthology", Edited by Edward L. Ferman and Kristine Kathryn Rusch.
I kinda have a soft spot for these horrible war tales, having served my country in the US Navy during Vietnam myself. I know where these poor guys are coming from.
