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

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...

News and Gossip from Queerty
Stonewall is tanking at the box office in wake of attacks on the film that started within hours of the trailer’s release. People are primed to hate it, as they seem to be whenever anything gay comes out (hello, Looking). In the decade since Brokeback Mountain, there are still very few major movies that are explicitly LGBT-oriented and fewer […]

Lance Bass is opening up about being “inappropriately touched” by an older male back when he was a member of ‘NSYNC. “When I was 16, 17,” Bass said on his Sirius XM radio show Dirty Pop, “someone we worked with definitely was touching me inappropriately.” He continued, “I even knew at 16 and 17 that, you […]
Russell Tovey has had a really tough time, you guys. It’s been reported that on a recent flight from London to NYC, the British actor and proud masculine man was seated next to, as multiple outlets have described, the “passenger from hell!” Spooky. Tovey live-tweeted his satanic experience mid-flight. Things started out optimistic enough: Tweeting mid […]
Police in Rock Hill, S.C. were called to a local Wal-Mart after receiving multiple calls about a mother who had allegedly shaved her 10-year-old son’s head, dressed him in women’s clothing, and “paraded him around” the store as a form of punishment, reports the Washington Post.

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.
