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
Louisiana: Republican state senator refers to Tony Perkins as 'extremist' associated with hate groupAs you may or may not know, rabidly anti-LGBT figure Tony Perkins is considering seeking a U.S. House seat that is opening up in his home state of Louisiana. If he were to move forward, this would obviously lead people...
Once again, a judge is telling the far right's fake "victims" what we all told them long ago: that you can't just discriminate against gay couples because you and your personal faith beliefs feel like it. The ACLU brings the...
Parade of nonsense: On the 'Kinky Boots' non-controversy [GLAAD]
Video: ESPN's Chris Broussard doubles down on saying Jason Collins is in 'open rebellion to God'; 'I don't have a problem with the way I articulated it'ESPN commentator Chris Broussard made national headlines when he claimed that openly gay basketball player Jason Collins is living "in open rebellion to God." Now listen to him continue to claim he simply "disagrees" with Collins and that his condemnation...
I've written several posts about the odd and duplicitous way that National Organization For Marriage personalities refer to their historic losses in the 2012 election, specifically how they overlook the fact that our side's fundraising advantage in those races is...
News and Gossip from Queerty
A group of porn producers for the third time has issued a temporary production moratorium after a performer tested positive for HIV. Porn industry expert Mike South reported Friday that the infected performer is a male on the “straight side of the biz” but not a “high level performer.” The Free Speech Coalition (FSC) called for the production […]
WATCH: Elton John Reveals Why He Performed In Russia, Dedicates Concert To Gay Man Killed In Hate CrimeDuring his controversial concert in Moscow last Friday, Elton John stated that he felt obligated to perform in Russia because didn’t want the LGBT people there to feel isolated. Paraphrasing lyrics from his nemesis good friend Madonna, the out superstar looked out at his audience filled with both gays and straights and declared that it’s […]
This is an interview technique we’re eager to try. Mike Enders, who runs the popular Accidental Bear blog, gets Rod Tomas, better known as electro-pop musician Bright Light Bright Light, to warm up in chilly San Francisco by stripping down with him for a luxurious bubble bath. The two men soak and discuss Tomas’ career, […]
Using the national census, Gallup polls, Facebook, dating sites and porno searches, a study from The New York Times estimates that at least 5% of American men are gay, while many are in the closet or quietly suffering in heterosexual marriages — particularly in traditionally conservative states. Times opinion contributor and economics smarty-pants Seth Stephens-Davidowitz […]
American fans of Tom Daley — so adorable and so adorably innocent — are in luck. The must-discussed interview for UK telly which perplexed fans of the newly gay bisexual British diving champ due to his shocking revelation that he wasn’t sure his new boyfriend, presumed by many everyone to be Dustin Lance Black, is […]
After complementing ourselves on our detective work to determine whether Olympic diver Tom Daley and screenwriter/activist Dustin Lance Black are indeed an item, a Queerty reader alerted us to a treasure trove of photos taken of the two men together over the past several months. It appears the couple has been hiding in plain sight […]
While waiting for Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black to confirm their rumored romance, we, like the rest of the blogosphere, have been searching for signs they’re really a couple and they’re definitely out there. First (and dare we say foremost?), there’s the photo (right) we posted in October of the twosome leaving a West […]
There’s nothing quite like a creamy shot to the face to prove your unwavering gayness, but in the case of James Franco v. Gay Rumors, a facial for the sake of comedy is the furthest thing from a smoking gun. This man is probably the only celebrity who can wish he were gay, confirm that […]
What is there to say about gay men’s choruses, other than that they are great? Yes, yes, as descriptors go, the term “gay men’s chorus” is highly problematic (why exclude Ls, Bs, and Ts from the name? Or straight allies, for that matter?) but in practice such choruses are otherwise welcoming of anyone who wants […]
A group of pentecostal pastors in Kenya have been conducting public “healing ceremonies” for people living with HIV, the Washington Post reports. The ceremonies begin with a “miracle blessing” of the HIV-infected person. Afterwards, the pastor burns the person’s anti-retroviral medications and declares them “cured.” Then the church charges the person a fee and sends them on their […]

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.
