GayGeeks.org: coming back... slowly
Crazy random alpha
Existing users log in
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
The New York Times has taken investigative reporting to new heights, or rather, depths. Reporter Anemona Hartocollis went out to New York underground, after-hours sex club Paddles – “the friendly S&M club” — with Dr. Demetre Daskalakis as he administered meningitis vaccines. Cavorting with go-go boys “flashing their rock-hard backsides” and half- (and then some) naked revelers in [...]

The burgeoning sexuality of a young European [...]
Riverdale’s resident gay Kevin Keller is growing up and kissing dudes.

PHOTOS: New Yorkers always have a way of coming together to share and strengthen the sense of community in the midst of tragedy. Thousands gathered at New York City’s LGBT Community Center Monday night to join City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, DOMA Supreme Court plaintiff Edith Windsor, Corey Johnson, and representatives from the New York [...]
Jealousy, revenge, (allegedly) murderous behavior in a Beverly Hills mansion… The story we reported last week about Mexican pop star and former RBD boy band member Christian Chavez (pictured) reads like an episode of an awesome telenovela. How appropriate then, because that’s how Chavez got his start back in 2005, when he and five co-stars [...]

In one of those inexpiable political twists, what seems to have been a far bigger lift — marriage equality —passed the state legislature two years ago, while bills to protect transgender New Yorkers keep dying. Now, the state’s two U.S. Senators, Chuck Schumer and Kristen Gillibrand, are making it clear that the state should correct that problem [...]
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and DOMA Supreme Court plaintiff Edith Windsor joined thousands of people in front of New York City’s LGBT Community Center.

Le1f took over the summer last year with the hypnotic track, “Wut,” and then kept things popping with “Soda” (from the futuristic-sounding Liquid EP). Now he’s back with “Spa Day,” a new song from the Fly Zone mixtape. (Download here.) There’s body-rubbing, splashing, drinking (and other things) at probably one of the dopest days at [...]

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.
