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

How not to hold a commentator accountable starring Fox News' Jeanine Pirro [GLAAD]
Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber, fresh off classifying homosexuality as "squalid & feculent abuse of the reproductive & digestive systems," wrote a piece today essentially calling on far-right, anti-LGBT conservatives like himself to break away from the Republicans and form a...
Video: Josh Duggar against rights for people who 'choose alternative lifestyles' #19Kids #AndCountingOnAnimusReality TV star and Family Research Council Action president Josh Duggar recently went on a local news program in North Carolina, where he went after nondiscrimination protections based on sexual orientation, marriage equality for people who "choose alternative lifestyles," and...
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann(About-As-Far-R-As-You-Can-Get–MN), who has referred to homosexuality as "part of Satan, I think" believes gay people have bullied America. Right Wing Watch brings us the clip: "...is getting a little tiresome is the gay community have so bullied the...
As a married gay dad who is also overwhelmed by the love I feel for my kid (and who has also been known to wear burgundy pants), I can safely say that this is one of the most welcome and...
News and Gossip from Queerty
We’re not quite sure what we’ve done to deserve this, but the gods are clearly pleased. And by that we mean Jake Gyllenhaal has donned a “modesty pouch” and put his ass on display for the world to admire. And it doesn’t disappoint. The actor’s bare buns make a cameo in Jake’s new film Everest, […]
It was a love story like none other. 19-year-old Katie Hill was in the process of transitioning from male to female when she fell in love with 18-year-old Arin Andrews, who was undergoing his own transition from female to male. The Oklahoma teenagers first went public with their tale on 20/20 last July. Now, they’ve each written […]
Openly gay Swedish footballer Anton Hysén has followed in the footsteps of Robbie Rogers and crossed the pond to sign with an American soccer league. OutSports reports that Hysén, who also (rightfully) moonlights as a male model, was signed by the Myrtle Beach Mutiny of the National Premier Soccer League earlier this week. According to gay4soccer, […]
There’s some new polling data fresh off the presses, and you know what that means: good news for us, bad news for NOM. Public support for marriage equality is at 59 percent in the latest survey — that’s super-high when you consider that just a decade ago support was in the mid-30s! And speaking of […]
Not only is Grindr without a doubt the most used gay app at SXSW “interactive,” it was also host to a swinging Saturday night party. The social app master teamed with entrepreneurial organization StartOut for a night of physical and professional networking. Heavy hitters from a confluence of organizations were grinding the night away. There are […]
In news that should surprise nobody, Tilda Swinton is all sorts of awesome. She’s gracious, humble and has a tongue with some serious sting. In a recent interview with The Daily Beast about her new vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive, the stunning (and stunningly talented) actress dishes on gay love, the vampire trope in pop culture, and what […]
Major corporations seem more interested in advertising images of their target demographic than their actual products these days, which means we’re bound to see (and praise!) same-sex couples doing more than just driving Chevrolet cars, reading Amazon Kindles and sitting on Crate & Barrel couches in the coming years. This week: multiracial and same-sex parents […]
A gaggle of concerned cyclists stripped down to their birthday suits and rolled through the streets of Lima, Peru last weekend in an effort to protest traffic problems and promote more bicycle-friendly policies in their country. “Ciclonudista” is an annual event where men and woman get naked, mount their bicycles, and pedal through the capital. The purpose […]
In an interview posted on Game of Thrones fan site WinterIsComing, actor Kristian Nairn revealed that he’s gay. And a pot of honey among bears. When asked about his…ahem…furrier fan base who holds his portrayal of Hodor, the brawny protector of mini-prince Bran Stark, in especially high esteem, Nairn had this to say: “Well, in all honesty, […]
If you can make it to Turkey, you’re set. That’s the mindset of the many LGBT Iranians who flee their home country seeking a brighter future free from constant government harassment and persecution. They call it the gay underground railroad. The decision to leave your home — family, friends and all familiarity — for an […]

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.
