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

"Please don't" begs an organization whose supporters have every reason to flee their failed experiment in discrimination: [NOM] Even that one bird is like, "I'm outta here." The rest will follow soon enough.
It's not perfect, what with its allowing church-led groups to sidestep the change. But still: Boy Scouts End Nationwide Ban on Gay Leaders [NYT] One small step for outdoorsy gay dads; one giant leap for an entire minority population sick...
No longer needing to pretend they are something other than the thoroughly Catholic organization they've always been, the National Organization For Marriage has announced this little stunt: [NOM] I love how it's all about supposedly men and women coming to...
Legislatively? Nope. The bad laws they passed were unconstitutional, and recent years have turned in our favor anyway. Electorally? Nope. The last four states to vote for marriage went in favor equality, and all credible polling for a few years...
By the time you read this headline, we'll be ten more seconds beyond stagnant anti-gay 'culture wars'Since it's summer vacation time, perhaps you've found yourself at a theme park. And at said theme park, perhaps you've found yourself sitting on some sort of tram watching the tableaus of an attraction play outside your moving window. When...

Biceps are the ultimate summer vanity muscle group, and one which many spend a great deal of time focusing on. So today is all about fluff — pumping your biceps up to their maximum potential in only a short couple of months. As you can see below, I only do drop sets for one muscle […]
There’s a new Freedom Reigns video coming soon to a screen near you. But we at The Underwear Expert are much too impatient for that. So in the meantime, we decided to treat you to a sneak peek. Where our exclusive featured some of Freedom Reigns’ 2015 swimwear and apparel, the new Freedom Reigns video […]
Matthew Vines is the author of the bestseller God and the Gay Christian. Vines calls the book “an open letter to modern Christians” about why they should support same-sex relationships, and what the Bible really says about homosexuality. In the wake of June’s Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage, some conservative Christians, seeing the writing on the wall, have […]
This week, Mean Girls stars Daniel Franzese and Jonathan Bennett reunited for a special fundraising screening, Chris Hemsworth’s giant penis was a topic of conversation and Sam Smith copped to sometimes feeling guilty for the freedom of being openly gay. Here’s what happened recently on Instagram: Russell Tovey took in some of that sunshine for which London is so renowned. Sunshine!!!! […]
I thought the show, creatively, was really doing something that I hadn’t seen on any other show, particularly dealing with gay lives. As a gay man, in particular, I was very proud that there was a show that felt like it was dealing very honestly and openly with gay men and their lives, without putting them […]
French film auteur Sébastien Lifshitz has combed through vintage photos at garage sales and flea markets and eBay for more than 20 years, amassing a collection of old queer life. We have no idea who the people in his pictures are, but we have at least a little glimpse into a world that was, somehow, preserved. Gazing through […]
I was hoping to remain silent on the incident at Starbucks but somehow the story found legs and has made its way into the press. I feel I owe my friends an explanation: Truth be told it was sweet iced tea, not coffee. I am a ‘sweet’ mannered Southern boy who was taught not to […]
It is Day 2 of Miami Fashion Week Swim, and Queety’s Outlander column has a rule when traveling: walk with purpose. If you’re going to pass through a doorway, walk in like you belong there. Sometimes you won’t be asked to leave, and you never know what might happen inside. For instance, you could be walking […]
If Kevin Hart is expecting the LGBT community to support his next movie, he might be a little disappointed. The vertically-challenged actor and comedian, who is profiled and featured on the cover of the current issue of Rolling Stone, revisited an old joke during the interview about his fears of having a gay son. During […]
There’s no doubt Marriage equality was an historic victory for equality, and a hard-earned one at that. But let’s be honest, marriage isn’t for everyone. Sure the tax benefits sound nice, but then there’s that whole “bound for life monogamy” bit that makes many feel like they just plunged into a tub of ice. Here are six alternatives […]

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.
