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

Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome is apparently an actual medical condition, and even though it sounds like great fun for everyone involved, one 37-year-old man from Wisconsin says it’s ruining his life. Dale Decker says he first realized he was suffering from PGAS in 2012 after he slipped a disk in his back and, as a […]
2014 has been the year of the gay/straight bromance in more ways than one. And although this year wasn’t the first time we’ve seen them, there’s no denying the obvious uptick in these unique kinds of bromances in Hollywood. Now that straight men are embracing gay porn, gay men, and gay(isn) bedroom activities, it’s time […]
Earlier this month, M. Lamar participated in a shockingly candid discussion with twin sibling Laverne Cox at the Baruch Performing Arts Center as part of the this year’s GenderFluid festival in New York City. Fans of the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black may know M. Lamar as portraying the character “Sophia” before she […]
We know Julius’ was the site of the famous Mattachine Society “sip-in” in New York City’s West Village in 1966, setting the stage for the spark of the modern gay rights movement to fully ignite. And the events that took place three years later just down the street from Julius’ at Stonewall have been firmly ensconced […]
Want a hunky male servant to wait on you hand and foot? Ask and you shall receive… For a price, of course. ManServants is a new service that allows people to contract hot gentlemen callers to come to their homes and do various chores. The price? $125 an hour, plus tip. But the company promises it will be money well spent. Qualifications to be a […]
National Coming Out Day is just a few weeks away. One California man has decided to get the celebration going early by sharing his emotional coming out story. “It is very difficult to accurately describe the terror, trepidation and insecurity that accompanies a ‘coming out’ moment,” Jack Freedman (pictured) writes in a new essay shared on […]
Ryan Murphy Says New ‘American Horror Story’ Clown Is So Scary It Might Cause Viewers To Have Heart AttacksWe said in the writer’s room that if we were going to do clowns, we were going to create the most terrifying clown of all time. That was our goal when we were writing him, but I’m worried about people being too afraid of our clown. It’s heart-stopping what he does. I’m worried. I’m worried that […]
Looks like the guys of Looking were off the hook from working at yesterday’s Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco and were free to just enjoy the sights. Director Andrew Haigh snapped this photo of Jonathan Groff and Raul Castillo enjoying the sunshine and leather: And here’s anther that shows Murray Bartlett getting in on the action: The […]
We just threw up in our mouths a little. Drek, a gay club based in Tel Aviv, has begun circulating publicity pictures that sexualize the beheadings of James Foley, David Haines and Steven Sotloff to promote their latest circuit party. Because nothing’s sexier than a homoerotic reinterpretation of the brutal murders of three innocent civilians. One of the images shows […]
Last year, ordering a Stoli cranberry at a gay bar would earn you all sorts of shady side looks from your friends, from total strangers and even from the bartender. That’s because there was a huge boycott going on to say “hell no” to the booze company as a protest over Russia’s harsh antigay laws. […]

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.
