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

Here's Focus on the...

When I first learned about the story of Idaho's Hitching Post, which was suddenly the far-right's latest marriage "victim" for supposedly being threatened by the city of Coeur d’Alene for not marrying a same-sex couple, I thought the whole thing...
Anti-equality devotee Robert Oscar Lopez has found yet another anti-gay conservative outlet to publish yet another of the same kind of piece that he keeps writing. The gist: He is the victim of gay activists and anyone who dares make...
In an interview with Jeffrey Toobin for The New Yorker, President Obama cited the recent Supreme Court decision to not grant cert to any same-sex marriage cases as the best SCOTUS decision in his tenure: I asked him to name...
News and Gossip from Queerty
Twenty-two years ago Madonna was more inescapable than ever. Her pulsating single “Erotica” was climbing the charts, an album of the same name had just been released (and it was even more sexual than any of the the singer’s past work), and the anticipation for her Basic Instinct knock-off ill-fated sensual thriller Body of Evidence was still high. […]
Things looked so good for Michael Sam when he became the first openly gay football player drafted in the NFL. The Rams picked him up, and there were endorsement deals, talk of TV shows, and national media attention all pointed at the young star player. And who could forget about that super hot boyfriend? Sure, there […]
Dozens of enthusiastic male masturbators found themselves the butt of a joke when they learned that what they thought was a photo of a woman’s cleavage was actually a man’s hairy butt crack. It all started on Monday whenReddit user poshpink330 posted a photo of what appeared to be a sexy cleavage pic to r/GoneWild, a popular online community where ladies post racy photos […]
As part of the Kickstarter campaign for their new documentary, Free For All: Inside The Public Library, San Francisco partners in life and filmmaking Dawn Logsdon and Lucie Faulknor are sharing a never-before-seen interview with Harry Hay (one of the founding fathers of the gay rights movement). When he was young and gay in the […]
Celebrity hairstylist Daniel Johnson is more than just a talented coiffurist. He’s also very skilled in the art of manscaping. The 32-year-old, tattooed hair expert is the official barber for England’s football team, as well as the X Factor. He recently teamed up with razor giants Braun to show off his mad torso shaving skills. His specialty? Famous […]
In the Summer of 1986, photographer Sage Sohier set out to document the lives of gay and lesbian Americans in their homes. It was the peak of AIDS hysteria, and her intimate photos stood (and continue to stand) in humanizing defiance to the horrible rumors and fears circulating about the gay community in mainstream society. Sohier’s father was […]
When asked why he was running for the U.S. Congress in South Carolina’s 6th district, Republican candidate Anthony Culler replied: “God has asked me to run.” Evidently, the married father of four, who claims to be a huge fan of Appalachian Mountain music, has God on speed dial and the two have late night gab fests all the time. “When elected,” […]
We’re getting into Jimmy Fowlie’s vapidly Californian web series Go-go Boy Interrupted, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s a fan. Commenters are unafraid to voice their often extreme opinions (about this show and literally everything else on the planet), which is the subject of episode three, out today. Watch as disgraced go-go boy Danny Carter tries to […]
Douches and dystopias and Diaz, oh my! This week in home entertainment we have a film fest fave about a narcissistic New York writer, Listen Up Philip; Snowpiercer, a dystopian sci-fi about a world where a train serves as the last home for humanity; and Cameron Diaz again flexing her comedic muscles in Sex Tape (above). […]
October is more than halfway over and we almost forgot: It’s Ex-Gay Awareness Month! How could we let something so important slip our minds? Shame on us. Perhaps those pesky “fart demons” have been tinkering with our memories again. Now, most “ex-gays” have a similar story: Once upon a time, they engaged in “sinful” behavior. Their bodies and hearts […]

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.
