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

News and Gossip from Queerty
Another year, another list of newly out celebrities to compile. Not that we’re complaining. In fact, the notion that lists of out and proud notables get longer every year gives us a warm and tingly feeling where it counts. But wouldn’t it be nice to get to a point where celebrities telling the world they’re LGBT […]
Stavros Louca didn’t let the fact that he weighs 420-pounds stop him from competing in the 2014 Mr. Gay UK competition. The 34-year-old proudly entered the contest — and won, albeit temporarily — earlier this year. Though he was eventually stripped of the title due to what competition organizers called a “technicality,” Louca’s story is still an […]
Inspired by the native Masai warriors of Kenya, the Modus Vivendi Masai Line has a powerful aesthetic in an abundance of underwear styles. It includes a brief ($29.68), sumo brief ($39.97), and boxer ($34.09). And similar to the Buddha Line, the Masai Line also includes a langot ($38.10), lounge pants ($86.76), and a robe ($149.72). The […]

Here’s what happened on Instagram: Ricky Martin rocks his legs back and forth. ???? A video […]
Let’s face it, our lady Cher will do anything for a buck. Over the years she’s hawked perfume, Lori Davis Hair products, Aquasentials skin care products, Equal Zero-Calorie Sweetener, exercise videos and, oh yeah, movies and albums, too. Her latest business endeavor: holiday-themed merchandise, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, ornaments, and coffee mugs, all featuring the dance diva and available for sale on her […]
Here’s a legitimate question: Why would you ever have a cookie decorating party again and not make it a “leather daddy cookie decorating party” after seeing these adorable little BDSM sweeties? Nothing says Christmas cheer like gingerbread men with a a penchant for domination. We hear they’re into biting. Woof. Here’s some deliciously naughty treats: Grandma’s going […]
When the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, it’s never fun to be the guy awkwardly darting his eyes around the room in search of a smooch. It’s even less fun to get a “courtesy smooch” from a close friend after they plant a passionate kiss on their lover’s lips. Finding dates is hard […]
So after half a century of Cold War posturing by both countries, the U.S. and Cuba have decided to get over themselves and normalize relations between the two countries. For most Americans, this amounts to an anti-climax; even young Cuban-Americans think the embargo against Cuba should be lifted. After all, if we can have diplomatic […]
‘Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to spread the joy than by giving your loved one a holiday-themed sexy toy. Lucky for him (and you!), there are no shortage of them out there. From peppermint flavored lube to dildos shaped like candy canes, you could stuff any stocking with x-rated trimmings. Here are some holiday-themed […]
By Letting Weddings Start In Florida, The Supreme Court Just Made It Clear That Marriage Equality Is A Done DealOn the surface, it seems like just one more piece of really good news. On Friday night, the Supreme Court refused to stop marriage equality in Florida, which means that weddings can start on Jan. 6. That’s a big deal for a lot of reasons: Florida is one of the most populous states without marriage […]

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.
