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

Pro-discrimination activists continue to use one woman's one-sided spite against ex-husband to attack marriage equalityLast time I wrote about this situation, the ex-husband in the story, Leif Anderson, left this tactful response to the ex-wife who had just publicly maligned him: But social conservatives who are eager to gain ground in a fight they...
Audio: Tony Perkins minimizes actual religious persecution; pretends he and anti-gay pals face 'deadly consequences'Religious persecution is very real. It involves war. And kidnapping. And hostages. And draconian prison sentences. And death—lots of death, in the name of a deity. And anti-LGBT commentator Tony Perkins totally gets it. After all, he and his movement...
Ryan Anderson, Mark Regnerus, Rick Warren, other inequality advocates urge Pope to 'commit to marriage'While they do not use the words "gay" or "same-sex" or language that speaks specifically to marriage equality, it's clear by the signees (Ryan Anderson, Robert George, Mark Regnerus, Rick Warren, Jennnifer Roback Morse, more) that this new letter, written...
Are some anti-LGBT activists missing a self-awareness gene? [GLAAD]
FRC faults Dems for broken, obstructionist Congress while advocating for broken, obstructionist CongressA bipartisan majority in the US Senate passed the Employment NonDiscrimination Act. All credible polling suggests the American public wants Congress to pass this law. Sadly, the obstructionist GOP House, which has made stopping President Obama and Democrats from passing...
News and Gossip from Queerty
Let’s hear it for John Carroll! The busy Broadway performer whose resume includes show-stopping turns in A Chorus Line, Follies and Wicked, was recently named one of the sexiest men alive of Australia’s gorgeous gay glossy DNA. We have to say we knew it all along. In addition to his photogenic good looks and rock-hard physique, Carroll […]
Jules Verne had quite the vivid imagination, taking readers around the world, to the the bottom of the sea and to the center of the earth. His style of sci-fi was a major influencer on the steampunk aesthetic, but we’re conjuring that even a man of his superior vision couldn’t have predicted Evan Butterfield’s Gentlemen […]
A racy fully-nude photo set allegedly showing Billy Reiliech, Ellen’s beautiful new gardener, has been making the rounds on Tumblr this week. The identification was first made by user 1nducement, who simply tagged Billy’s name on an already-existing photo set. The set includes 10 photos featuring one full head shot, two semi-clothed selfies taken in a […]
In case you forgot what Nick Jonas’ beautiful abs look like since last week, take a long, hard look at them on the cover of Flaunt magazine’s Grind issue. Nick teased the photo below on Instagram last night, promising a “full feature out later this week.” Nick’s abs seem to be doing just fine since […]
In this stunning yet laid back photo editorial from Barry Marrè, Jerone from Actors and Models Agency glams it up in the most casual setting. Wearing a pair of shimmering gold brief underwear by Allan Vos, the team successfully proves that you can wear a flashy pair of underwear like this outside of the club, and in […]
A groundbreaking new study has found men with bigger bellies last an average of five minutes longer in the sack than guys with six pack abs. But this is hardly the first time science has found unconventionally handsome people make better lovers. There is ample evidence out there to suggest having the body of a Greek god doesn’t necessarily translate to being […]
It’s all about variety this week, from a brainless big-budget FX blockbuster, Transformers: Age of Extinction, to a 1970s retro sci-fi parody, Space Station 76, to a queer Polish drama, Floating Skyscrapers (above), plus one of queer German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s best works, Ali: Fear Eats The Soul. Here’s the skinny on each. […]
The long-awaited trial of former gay porn model Luka Magnotta finally began in Montreal yesterday, where Magnotta admitted for the first time to killing his former boyfriend. Despite his confession, Magnotta plead not guilty to five charges related to the May 2012 killing of his boyfriend, Concordia University student Jun Lin. His lawyers have chosen […]
We can’t say we were exactly shocked by the results, but watching a bunch of gay guys attempt to decipher feminine hygiene products is entertaining nonetheless. Buzzfeed asked a bunch of their male coworkers to give it their best, resulting in such colorful comments as, “Literally no idea,” “you can yank it out when it’s […]
“Correct me if I’m wrong, is this the debut of Ben Affleck’s penis on the screen?” asks an MTV interviewer in a press junket for the upcoming film Gone Girl. Ben starts off treading a bit of word water: “I don’t know, I try to get it in every movie…[Director David Fincher] said to me from the […]

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.
