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

News and Gossip from Queerty
Los Angeles is the city where the word bored really doesn’t come up. From the crashing of waves at the popular beaches to the twinkling lights of Hollywood, there’s never enough time to soak it all in. While the debauchery of nightlife on Santa Monica Boulevard might pop first to mind, it’s really just one option at the end of the day. […]
While hundreds of millions of people around the world were wrapped up in the World Cup this year — or, let’s be honest, just enjoying the scenery — gay rights organizations like GLAAD, Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) were following a different narrative: the rampant and largely unchecked homophobia […]
Things got totally out of control on an episode of Jeopardy this week (or was it a televised drag ball?) when show host Alex Trebek started speaking in tongues usually reserved for drag queens and their admirers. The ancient early-evening game show is usually a pretty tame, safe space for people who don’t necessarily speak in modern […]
As the international community grieves over the nearly 300 lives lost in the Malaysia Airlines flight that crashed in Ukraine last week, AFA’s Bryan Fischer is already using the tragedy to further his own antigay agenda. While speaking about the plane crash that killed 298 people, including 100 top HIV/AIDS researchers, last week, President Obama promised that the U.S. would “continue […]
Vacation rental service Airbnb proves this week that you can run a streamlined community-driven business and respond to its users’ gripes on a friendly case-by-case basis, contrary to what Facebook would like you to believe. Facebook has been slammed countless times in the past for running an automated content-blocking filter that enables homophobes to effectively […]
Last year, GLAAD introduced the first annual Studio Responsibility Index (SRI) — a new report examining the quantity and quality of LGBT representation in mainstream Hollywood film, and the results were less than encouraging. The second report has just been released, and though time may have marched forward a year, you wouldn’t have guessed it by […]
Just when we thought we’d heard it all, this guy opened his mouth. Bert Farias (pictured), founder of Holy Fire Ministries, claims to know the “raw, naked truth” about why people are gay: They are possessed by “fart demons.” Yes, fart demons. Oh, but it gets better. Farias also claims that in choosing to be gay, a person […]
PHOTOS: True Blood Hunk Alex Skarsgård’s Younger Brother Also Plays A TV Vampire, And Yes It’s Super HomoeroticMaybe we’re late to the party, but undead True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgård has a hot younger brother named Bill who plays — get this —a vampire named Roman Godfrey on the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove. Pale-skinned Swedish typecasting anyone? The series also features werewolves and strong homoerotic undertones. Sound familiar? And speaking of those undertones, here’s what […]
The man who claims he had an intimate “love affair” with A-list actor John Travolta back in the ’80s has been granted the opportunity to challenge the validity of his 20-year-old confidentiality agreement in order to write a tell-all memoir. Douglas Gotterba, the 64-year-old pilot who told the National Enquirer that sex with John Travolta […]
A mother’s encouraging letter to her 13-year-old gay son has gone viral. The note was published on PFLAG’s A Note To My Kid message board earlier this week. In it, the mother writes that she is proud of her son for coming out, and that he will always be loved and supported by both of his parents. “Dear Connor,” the missive begins. “I […]

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.
