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

Politics from Good As You
His name being so associated with conservative activism, it's easy to forget that Roy Moore is actually the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. And here is his latest transgression: In a letter to Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, Moore...
For the most part I now ignore people like Bryan Fischer and their desperate cries in a thickening political wilderness. However, sometimes we need a reminder that this man has spoken at top conservative conferences alongside GOP presidential candidates: [RWW]...
In its latest fundraising pitch, the Family Research Council highlights many things that the anti-LGBT org. is supposedly doing. Many of them are stretches of the truth because, well—it's FRC. But this highlighted one is just a blatant lie: Of...
Latest conservative theory about me, my power, and the one ten minute post I wrote about the Legatus Summit: [Fringe talk show host Cliff Kincaid] later called on Shepard Smith to “come out of the closet,” accusing the Fox News...
Brandon McGinley, a senior staffer with the Pennsylvania Family Institute who also writes for a number of conservative (and largely anti-LGBT) publications, has admitted that GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project (which I created with a small team at GLAAD) is "smart"...
News and Gossip from Queerty
I’m a human being before I am a writer; and a writer before I am a blogger, and although it’s been a joy and a privilege to have helped pioneer a genuinely new form of writing, I yearn for other, older forms. I want to read again, slowly, carefully. I want to absorb a difficult […]
We’re going to be honest here — even before this ad surfaced, Domino’s pizza already left a bad taste in our mouths. But we’ll never be able to get this image of a tongue dressed up in bondage gear out of our heads. It was never actually run, but was a pitched idea to promote […]
New England Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski is the stuff that dreams are made of. Mostly wet dreams. But he’s also proven himself to be a damn good sport by agreeing to read aloud from a piece of erotic fan fiction titled A Gronking To Remember by Lacey Noonan at the recent Super Bowl Media Day in Arizona. Here’s […]
Contemplating over how to use those frequent flyer miles this year? After compiling our popular list of incredible Out Adventures to experience before you die, we thought we’d come up some ideas of where to get started on that goal, this year. It’s a great time to strategize on where to go next and what’s trending in […]
Bad news for recreational drug users: Think twice before snorting poppers up your nose, lest you suffer from “sudden sniffing death.” A new study has found that poppers just ain’t what they used to be. That is, they aren’t made with the same kind of nitrites as back in the day. Instead, many now contain things like […]
We love it when video games incorporate LGBT elements into their games, and why wouldn’t we? There are tons of gay gamers who deserve a little representation in the games they play, and even more straight ones who might benefit from some subtle exposure to gay people (even if they are of the digital variety) […]
“All the people close to me have known for years who I am,” actor Joel Grey tells People in a new interview. “[Yet] it took time to embrace that other part of who I always was.” The Broadway legend and Academy Award-winning actor just came out as gay… at 82 years old. It is the first time he has […]
When Howard Stern called Sam Smith “fat,” ugly” and “effeminate,” the British crooner took personal offense, and rightfully so. He initially took to Twitter and wrote, “Can’t believe what I’ve just read.” That was followed by a second tweet that simply read: “Ignore.” This prompted none other than Bonnie Hunt (remember her?) to voice her support […]
The Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City is currently presenting Art & AIDS: Amor y Pasión, an exhibition curated by Osvaldo Perdomo and David Livingston featuring artists living with HIV and AIDS. The exhibition is an outcome of weekly therapeutic art classes run by GMHC’s Volunteer, Work, and Wellness Center as well […]
We can all stop Ruminating over when Drag Race season seven will premiere. The good folks over at Logo have put an end to the Rumors and finally Ruvealed the grand Paulmiere date. March second, ladies and gents-dressed-as-ladies. A little later than we might have hoped, but you can’t always get what Ru want. Sorry, last one. Consider this season seven […]

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.
