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

Politics from Good As You
In 2012, the National Organization For Marriage aligned itself with the politically active Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, NY, in order to elect a Republican named David Storobin to a lone six-month term in the New York state senate. At...
Since becoming a parent, something I've prioritized for both myself and my family is the elimination of gossip and smack-talk from our lives. At only twenty months old, my daughter is already a sponge who often mimics words and actions...
Another annual reminder that elections have consequences: White House Pride Proclamation, 2015
The far-right is determined to make a thing out of Solicitor General Verrilli's relatively unremarkable comments during the recent SCOTUS marriage hearing. To this end, Republican US Senator Mike Lee is aligning his name with the Family Research Council, one...
It's a good thing natural disasters exist. If not, the far-right wouldn't have a reductive and offensive thing with which to compare LGBT rights and other fair-minded aspects of civil life: Although I do actually see one comparison: Any responsible...

Nobody likes going out to the gay bar all by his lonesome. Not only is is awkward, but it can be boring, and some may even feel embarrassment, although one should not. That’s why everyone needs a great wingman. A wingman is a friend–not necessarily a close friend–who’s fun to drink with. He keeps you […]
For the third year running, the World Happiness report analyzed countries based on factors including GDP per capita, social support, life expectancy and freedom of choice to determine the happiest and unhappiest places on the planet.

The news that former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert was indicated for illegally withdrawing large sums of money from his bank account was shocking enough. But now it turns out that the reason for the withdrawals is even more shocking. Apparently, Hastert, who was a teacher and wrestling coach before entering politics, has been […]
If you stumbled into your childhood bully on the street, what would you say? Would you pop ’em a sharp left hook to the jaw, or would a withering look suffice? Running through Sunday at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, “Look Into My Eyes” asks a handful of gay men, lesbians, and transgendered […]
Actor Maxwell Caulfield’s legacy just keeps getting richer. When the ridiculously handsome British actor starred in the 1982 cult musical Grease 2 as the love interest of Michelle Pfeiffer, he did more that just win her character’s heart by the end of the film. He also ignited a fire in the loins of a multitude of […]
When 30-year-old lawyer David Messerschmitt got a response to his Craigslist ad seeking some male affections outside his heterosexual marriage, he never could have expected the danger he’d be walking into. Here are the details that show just how bizarre the case is: Messerschmitt went to meet “Chris Sanchez” at a hotel in Washington, D.C. in February, […]

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.
