GayGeeks.org: coming back... slowly
Crazy random alpha

What is this?
Gay Geeks is a forum for (duh) gay geeks of all types to hang out, chat, debate, rant, occasionally flirt shamelessly, and just generally chill. You don't have to be a computer geek, and you don't have to "prove" how geeky you are. It's all about self-identification, peeps. Just be whatever.
We're in a crazy alpha period right now, where I randomly add new features and break old ones all the time, while getting feedback from you guys. Luckily, new people turn up every day by just typing in the URL, assuming a site like this must exist.
What can I do here?
Non-members can enjoy our wonderful feed aggregation below. Isn't that fun? So much gay news! I bet you feel informed and entertained already.
If you register as a user you can get access to our forums, where you talk about anything, as well as exchange private messages with other users, and set up a profile with a gallery. You know, for the flirting. I realize these are not novel features, but we're working on some unique new features right now too :-)Close this

Politics from Good As You
Brian Brown's organization literally vowed to "drive a wedge between blacks and gays." Remember that as you read Brian, now one of the most desperate clothes-less emperors in all of American politics, directly compare a ruling that extended freedoms to...
Here's something novel: an advancement from the religious world: Details: AP via ABC News And of course all of the anti-gay conservatives will fully respect their religious freedom. Right?
In yet another fundraising plea (because NOM does little else these days), the already-done-even-if-they-don't-know-it-yet National Organization For Marriage has taken to calling the Obergefell decision "illegitimate": [NOM] Of course if it would've been 5–4 the other way, and the majority...
You guys, if you donate forty buckerooskies to the notoriously and infamously anti-gay Focus on the Family, you can save one marriage. Or, um, two. They claim different things in different places. Either way, they definitely have managed to put...
God's probably about to drown us all because of marriage equality. So suggests Fox News' own Todd Starnes: [Facebook] (h/t: Joe) For starters, it doesn't even make any sense. The prideful White House came before D.C. precipitation. Since the rainbow...
News and Gossip from Queerty
What comes to mind when you think of the word ‘gay’? Pride? Equality? A giant penis frightening innocent bystanders by shooting gold confetti? For us, it’s a mixture of all three, but mostly that last one. Below, see how guys ranging from 10-50 years old react when ‘gay’ pops into a word association exercise. Judging […]
Actor Matt Dallas, best known as the lead in the ABC Family series Kyle XY, celebrated the long Independence Day weekend by tying the knot with his partner, music producer Blue Hamilton. Dallas, 32, came out publicly two years ago via Twitter with a casual mention of his sexual orientation and his fiance, Hamilon. The two men notified fans of the […]
One week ago Becky Wegner Rommel was just your average housewife reading her Bible in Ellettsville, Indiana. Then she uploaded a video of herself imploding over marriage equality and spewing all kinds of hateful nonsense. And just like that, an international Internet star was born. Queerty was the first to report on Rommel’s epic meltdown last Wednesday. Since then, the […]
Only a few isolated locations in the country remain where same-sex couples can’t get married. Those opposed to equality are getting increasingly desperate, with stall tactics and long-shot legal games. We’re also likely to see renewed attacks on other civil rights, so there’s still going to be a lot of work to do in order […]
Jesus Christ has been plagued by gay rumors almost as often and as long as an Oscar-nominated Scientologist, but according to noted theologian and author Dr. Reverend Bob Shore-Goss, Magdalene and the Virgin weren’t the only Marys in town. Shore-Goss spoke with Vice‘s Jules Suzdaltsev about Jesus’ inherent queerness and how people misinterpret the Bible’s view on homosexuality . […]
The Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality remains cause for celebration, but as the resistance that quickly sprung up shows, not everyplace is going to embrace it. That’s likely to be a particular problem in small town America. Even in the deep south, major cities have large LGBT communities, with all the political connections that […]
Move over Dallas news reporter John Fenoglio, there’s scruffy new hunk vying for our attention. Meet Foster Huntington. The 27-year-old lumbersexual recently quit his high-paying job in New York’s fashion industry to live… in a treehouse. “I could’ve bought a house,” Huntington told the New York Times. “But this is so much better. For me, it’s realizing a […]
Making high quality, nutrient-dense meal decisions is one of the most important factors to having success with a healthy lifestyle. Ideally, you’re buying nothing but organic, preservative-free, humanely-raised, wild-caught produce and proteins. But…what if you’re poor, struggling, going through a rough patch? Most of us get to this point of lovely struggle in adulthood. Sometimes, it’s […]
First word, first step, first day at school, first kiss — there’s really only one natural life progression to hit next — first Pride! Do you remember your first Pride? No? Then you probably did something right. But it’s not always rainbow glitter and unicorn smiles. Pride can be overwhelming, messy and eye-opening. Below, guys Whisper […]
And what is that reason, you ask? Come on, it’s Instagram. They’re hot. Enough said. Meet Pittsburgh couple Nick and Justin, whose hearty American names match their good grooming practices and impossible stomachs. They may not be serving the face of diversity, but we’d be lying to say they aren’t serving something that’s stimulated our appetite. Enjoy: […]

This blows. Where else can I go?
It certainly leaves a lot to be desired at the moment, but the lack of anywhere very good is why I'm building it. Here's some other places to try:
- One of the best online communities I've ever been a part of, but sadly very London-centric.
- There's a pretty big intersection between geeks and gamers; I've met some great people from this site.
- Gay Intellectuals @ Gay.Com
- Some folks at Gay.com got tired of the emphasis on searching by penis length and tried to inject some culture into what is frankly a cesspit of a site. This is their own independent web presence.
- A safe space for LGBT people, this seems to be more focussed on support and the newly coming-out.
I also recommend these fine, semi-related sites:
- GayGeek reviews gay adult sites, so you don't have to. We don't do porn, but luckily for you, these guys do.
- Good As You
- Skewering the intolerant right, the adorable Jeremy covers politics daily from a gay perspective.
- Bittorrents of gay movies. The old forum owed a lot of its popularity to people accidentally ending up here while looking for this place.
