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

Yes, I do plan to put some more words on this website. But in the meantime, your best bet for hearing and/or interacting with my musings is to follow me on Twitter. Why? Because that's the one creative outlet I...

In his 2011 book The War For Late Night, Bill Carter tells a story that really resonated with me. It's a private conversation between Conan O'Brien and a top NBC executive. The conversation took place after it was clear that...
She is portraying herself as a victim even though she is the one denying equal treatment, basic fairness, and dignity to a minority population. She is arrogant, thumbing her nose at court orders that go all the way up to...
Declaring that she has "little or no likelihood" to win on appeal, a Sixth Circuit panel has denied a now infamously anti-equality clerk's attempts to sidestep her job whenever a qualified same-sex couple requests she fulfill her paid duties: A...

Last year something happened to me that I never would have expected. I posted about it on Facebook and the reactions I got from friends and followers surprised me. I was working at Starbucks on a Friday afternoon when a cute frat boy-type guy sat down at the next table. We did the look-and-then-look-away-then-look-then-smile flirting […]

The gay invasion of Downtown Los Angeles continues, although this time it is more like a move up than just a move in. Mustache Mondays, the long-running Monday night party hosted by Nacho Nava, has ditched its rough-around-the-edges digs at La Cita, the Mexican-theme dive bar, and moved into the basement of DTLA’s iconic Globe […]
A very wise person once stated “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes and gay men love to be overly dramatic.” Eliad Cohen and Idan Matalon demonstrate this, as well as their lip-syncing skills by re-enacting a passionate scene from a popular telenovela. They’re both so good at […]
Have a friend who’s on the cusp of bursting out of the closet–or one who should be celebrating an anniversary of the milestone? Well, that perfect gift can prove awfully elusive — and stakes are high. While not everybody can orchestrate a way to make their friends’ coming out experience a viral smash, we can […]
Everyone knows the age-old saying “opinions are like assholes; everybody has one.” Well, never has that asshole smelled more putrid than when offered up by the type of person referred to as an “Internet Troll,” — the Bitter Bettys who negatively comment on anything and everything posted on the Internet.Why just read many of the comments […]
If you were a ’90s kid with a cable hookup, chances are Hey Arnold still occupies a special soft spot in your heart. The Nickelodeon cartoon ran from 1996-2014, giving children with oddly-shaped heads everywhere the hope that it gets better. Well, if the actor responsible for Arnold’s voice for the first 41 episodes of the show […]
Club promoter Locoya Hill Entertainment hosted Wild Kingdom at The Sound Factory in San Francisco earlier this month. The night included ripped, neon painted go-go boys, a bouncy house, tunes by DJ MiShA Skye, lots of hip shaking and booty popping, and a very special appearance by Sister Roma herself. Was it wild?

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.
