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

Head of Virginia's anti-equality org: 'open season to discriminate against anyone who believes that children deserve a mom and a dad'People who oppose marriage equality are not burdened one bit by same-sex couples' marriages. But that doesn't stop Victoria Cobb, longtime head of Virginia's main anti-equality organization, to claim that yesterday's 4th Circuit ruling in favor of marriage equality constitutes...
These man who co-wrote Virginia's discriminatory marriage amendment, Del. Bob Marshall (R), responded to yesterday's 4th Circuit ruling in favor of marriage equality by further proving why bans like the one he championed will all be invalidated in short order....

This weekend San Francisco played Master to its annual “Up Your Alley” festival. If you thought Folsom was intense, this outdoor display of everything from leather to downright nudity tops it year after year. Flip through our exclusive hand-picked gallery, RSVP to the upcoming Folsom, and see how pictures from last year compare for kinkiness… CLICK HERE for […]
You may recognize Max Emerson as the male model who stood completely nude in the middle of a laundromat for Adore Delano’s “DTF” video, or the delightfully engaging Instagram star who captions life, not photos. But that changes today. From this point forward, you will remember Max Emerson for his collaborative project with avant garde filmmaker […]
The conclusion to Zac Efron’s death-defying rappel down a jagged cliff to retrieve his wet t-shirt is finally available for your online viewing pleasure, and there’s never been a better time to drop absolutely everything and watch Zac Efron breathe while shirtless. As you may already know, Zac appeared on the premiere episode of NBC’s […]
This post can be found in the GayCities galleries.
Maybe it’s the smooth jazz cover of the show’s theme song that brings out the real nuance. Or it could be we were too focused on Prince Oberyn fantasies to really pay attention. But whatever the reason, this clip from HBO’s Game of Thrones really leaves nothing to interpretation: the Night’s Watch is gay as Christmas. Take […]
Michele Bachmann, who keeps reappearing like a cold sore, has returned to the scene again as her usual offensive self. This time, the departing-none-too-soon Representative is recycling the canard that all gays are pedophiles, with her standard off-the-wall twist, all in the service of defending traditional marriage. Gays will “abolish age of consent laws, which […]
There’s no denying that 66-year-old Richard Simmons is equipped with as much (if not more) youthful vigor than that time the cast of Glee went rollerskating with One Direction. And it is perhaps his seemingly infinite well of zeal that makes him such a natural at locking down the perfect Facebook presence while most people his age either […]
Underwear marketing extraordinaire Andrew Christian has gone biblical in his latest video, pitting good “white winged” angels against evil “black winged” angels in a fight to the death because for some reason, love between white angels and black angels is “forbidden” and they need to fight about it. Angels vs. Demons probably had the largest […]
There goes the gayborhood. Literally. A new study conducted at the University of British Columbia suggests that gay neighborhoods may soon be a thing of the past. The study has found that fewer same-sex couples are living in historically gay neighborhoods — San Francisco’s Castro district, New York’s Chelsea, Chicago’s Boystown, etc. — compared to just 10 years ago. The number of […]
Teenage girls and gay One Direction fans were forced into panic mode yesterday afternoon as Liam Payne, the band’s resident moral authority and champion of “family values,” posted a “nude” photo to his Instagram page. “Damn that my last pair!”, he writes, referring to a pair of swim trunks that had inconspicuously been replaced with […]

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.
