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

Yes, I do plan to put some more words on this website. But in the meantime, your best bet for hearing and/or interacting with my musings is to follow me on Twitter. Why? Because that's the one creative outlet I...

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
Well, we probably should’ve seen this one coming: the artist who created an illustration of a nude Donald Trump, including a very minuscule penis, says that she’s been assaulted by a Trump supporter. “Today I was punched in the face by a man who got out of his car and yelled, ‘Trump 2016!’ in Los Angeles, just [...]
Ricky Martin is so movie-star handsome that his face belongs on the big screen. Until that happens, the next best thing is seeing his signature tune “Livin’ La Vida Loca” performed by some very familiar film personalities, including James Bond and Mary Poppins. The clip was created by video editor Ross Thompson, who runs the fun [...]
Things we already knew about “world’s hottest math teacher” Pietro Boselli: he looks like a Greek statue in his underwear, he’s also the world’s most distracting math teacher, and can we mention the underwear part again? In other words, we don’t know him all that well, though it’s more than enough to appreciate. Well after Vogue [...]
On the one hand, I feel like this season has gone way too quickly. On the other hand, I feel like I’ve been waiting for Derrick’s elimination since the day I was born. The fact that everyone comments on how surprising it was to actually like her is so delicious that I don’t even need [...]
It’s a week of revolution in home entertainment – at least as far as the steps these characters take to make their dreams come true, from a real-life housewife turned inventor in Joy (above) to the queer teenage son of a preacher in Henry Gamble’s Birthday to a male stripper and musical theater geek pushing [...]
May is here and all we can say is, “WOW!” The queens really brought it in April with some seriously fierce makeup looks. From alien realness to corset couture, April slayed with these looks. Enjoy the 20 amazing looks and then leave a comment letting us know whose look you think was the best. Plus, if you [...]
Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party — the newest gay feature from Chicago-based writer-director Stephen Cone (The Wise Kids) — is a fast-flowing drama featuring a powerful ensemble cast led by one of the most exciting new out gay actors of the year. Blue-green-eyed freckle-faced Cole Doman plays the titular and irresistible birthday boy — the son of [...]
It should come as no surprise that Wayne Skivington is a Cirque du Soleil performer. But he’s also an awesome dad. In a video that’s gone viral for a number of obvious reasons, the strongman father shows his son a thing or two about strength, balance and speedos — not necessarily in that order.

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.
