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

In a stayed ruling—the second one today from a southern state—U.S. District Court Judge Carlton Reeves has ruled Mississippi's discriminatory marriage ban to be just that. Read it and weep, NOM: Mississippi ruling The hold lasts for fourteen days. But...
In a stayed ruling, U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker today struck down one of our more conservative state's discriminatory marriage ban: Federal Judge Overturns Arkansas' Gay Marriage Ban [AP] It is a near-certainty that the state will appeal to the...
LGBT equality activists are now just like the SA members who brought Hitler and the Holocaust to rise (aka "Brownshirts"). Because this is what passes for acceptable conservative rhetoric in prominent conservative journals: Regardless of how they began, the colors...
The prominent Christian conservative outlet First Things is promoting a new effort called "The Marriage Pledge." Essentially, it's a recognition, at long last, that church ceremony and civil marriage are, in fact, separate and distinguishable (even if many, or perhaps...
When legal outfits like Alliance Defending Freedom take up the cases of bakers and florists and photographers who try to skirt local nondiscrimination law so that they can refuse service to LGBT customers, they most always lose. That's because public...
News and Gossip from Queerty
Fox News commentator and columnist Todd Starnes is pissed. In a new rant published by Charisma News, Starnes complains that a little local library in Cordova, AK (population 2,285) is refusing to carry his latest hate manifesto book God Less America: Real Stories From the Front Lines of the Attack of Traditional Values. Starnes, of course, has a rich history […]
We’ve already written plenty about how Bioware’s new game, Dragon Age: Inquisition, is super-queer-friendly. It has the first exclusively gay party member, multiple gay and bi romance options, and lots of graphic (but tasteful) gay sex to enjoy. But did you also know it has a trans character, and that’s he’s voiced by Jennifer Hale, who played the […]
We already know that straight guys are a lot more bisexual than people think. We also know that they secretly get off on watching gay porn. But we never knew exactly why. Until now. A new study out of the University of Portsmouth in England has uncovered why some straight dudes have gay sex fantasies, and it all boils […]
For someone who is pretty much always naked, we were sort of surprised Davey Wavey’s newest venture was in the underwear world. Then again, it’s Davey Wavey, who loves being around guys, and it just makes sense he wanted to create a line of underwear so he could be as close as possible to boys around the […]
You’re one step closer to being allowed to wed in Arkansas, but don’t pick out your wedding rings just yet. Tuesday’s federal victory is on hold so the dreadful Governor Mike Beebe has time to appeal. He may not have to, though: the Arkansas Supreme Court could be ruling in a separate gay marriage case any day […]
James Franco, Zachary Quinto Have A Threeway, Playgirl Model Gets Fired Over Pics, Kirk Cameron’s Scheme BackfiresWonder what a James Franco and Zachary Quinto sandwich would be like? Up-and-coming Teen Wolf actor Charlie Carver knows. E!’s Marc Malkin reports the three have filmed a torrid love scene for their upcoming indie flick Michael, about a former gay activist/magazine publisher “who became an antigay Christian fundamentalist after announcing he was now straight.” […]
A Florida man has learned the hard way why it’s really not a good idea to attempt to rape people. 58-year-old Phuc X. Kieu (we swear that’s his real name) was arrested after a bizarre gay-x-rated-fantasy-turned-burglary/gay-rape-attempt gone awry at an ATM machine in Orlando. According to police, Kieu, who works as a licensed nail specialist, had been […]
It’s a good thing Jonathan Jesensky had dreams of becoming a firefighter and not, say, a politician. The 33-year-old New Yorker just joined the squad as a rookie, but not before starring in about ten gay porn films over the years. You might know him better as Jonathan West, the hunky tattooed former military man who performed in […]
A U.K. man who made false rape accusations against four gay guys is headed to the slammer. 43-year-old Mark Wixey (pictured) will spend the next six years behind bars after accusing four innocent men of rape. Wixey met three of the men on the dating sites Gaydar and Plenty of Fish. After hooking up with each […]
If you’re woefully uncreative in the kitchen and don’t know what to make this Thanksgiving, perhaps you’ll get a few ideas from this parody of Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” called “Shake and Bake” from Daniel Franzese, best known as Damian in Mean Girls and soon to be seen in Looking, and Adrian Anchondo. On second thought, […]

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.
