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

National Organization For Marriage religious liaison Willie Owens loves to call same-sex marriage unnatural. Here he is doing it again, alongside extreme anti-gay activist Roy Moore, and just days before he speaks at the so-called "march for marriage": "Go try...
Audio: NOM #March4Marriage speaker opposes 'destructive behavior' of homosexuality, links it to addictionWith their so-called "march for marriage" happening only days before the US Supreme Court hears the most critical marriage cases in which the anti-LGBT movement will be tasked with denying that personal animus toward homosexuality is what guides their resistance...

But wow, this one sure isn't going to help the pro-discrimination movement one...

News and Gossip from Queerty
Finally, the restaurant we’ve been waiting for. Tallywackers is a new dining establishment coming to Dallas. Per a help wanted ad posted to Craigslist, it appears to be a bar and restaurant specializing in hot dogs and other phallic-shaped foods served up by a staff of half-naked hunks. In other words: It’s the male equivalent to Hooters. And we’re sure it’s going to […]
When hookup dating apps first emerged onto the market and changed the landscape of social interaction in the gay community as fast as you could load more guys, the idea of posting a face pic was still a bit edgy, even in gay meccas. But times have changed. Edward Snowden taught us that the government can (and […]
“When my rapist showed up under the ‘People You May Know’ tab on Facebook, it felt like the closest to a crime scene I’ve ever been,” Kevin Kantor recalls in a haunting performance piece during the 2015 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational. “Facebook informs me that we have three mutual friends. Which is to say that he […]
Season 7 has been plagued (perhaps rightly) with criticism since before it started. From the delayed premiere to the boring contestants to the illogical eliminations, the show’s evident struggles have caused some to dub this the Worst Season Ever. Well, Mama Ru isn’t about to let that happen, and tonight’s hoe-down is a barn burner, packing in more […]
I got drunk on a cross-country flight with this guy. He was like 89 or 94, sitting next to me. I wasn’t going to drink, but then he got a drink and I figured why not. He was so cute, wearing a bow tie and a fancy suit. I saw his wedding ring and asked him […]
In Brandon Alexander III and Dudley Beene’s new film First Period, new girl Cassie (Alexander) and school outcast Maggie (Beene) are on an ’80s-tacular quest to rise to the top of their high school hierarchy, armed with all the best/worst retro drag your heart could desire. In the following Queerty-exclusive scene, Cassie shows her seductive side as she does […]
There are five men on the 2015 Freedom Reigns team, and surprise surprise, the hot new models score high points with The Underwear Expert. Freedom Reigns excels as a sexy, sporty brand thanks to their All-American design and taste in sex appeal. Count on them to be masculine, but far from a stick in the mud. Think locker room exhibitionist, with a […]
A theater in Sandpoint, Idaho has cancelled screenings of the comedy-mystery Wild Canaries due to “inappropriate content.” The film contains no nudity and no sex scenes, but it does have two lesbian main characters so… Barry Diller has long been one of the entertainment industry’s most powerful men. Now former New York Times Magazine writer Andrew Goldman claims he […]
We’ll admit, the news cycle is remarkably short and people’s memories are even shorter, but how is it possible that famed designer (and billionaire) Giorgio Armani could forget the backlash his fellow Italian designers Dolce and Gabbana faced over their divisive comments about gays? It’s only been a month — what kind of Bulgari-shit is […]
From age twenty forward, I’d certainly exercised my right to be an individual. I was rather grounded at home as a serial monogamist, jumping from one long term relationship to another. Out of the house, however, I lived a sordid life experimenting with drugs and exploring various sexual avenues. These acts of self-sabotage seem to […]

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.
