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

Yes, I do plan to put some more words on this website. But in the meantime, your best bet for hearing and/or interacting with my musings is to follow me on Twitter. Why? Because that's the one creative outlet I...

In his 2011 book The War For Late Night, Bill Carter tells a story that really resonated with me. It's a private conversation between Conan O'Brien and a top NBC executive. The conversation took place after it was clear that...

Declaring that she has "little or no likelihood" to win on appeal, a Sixth Circuit panel has denied a now infamously anti-equality clerk's attempts to sidestep her job whenever a qualified same-sex couple requests she fulfill her paid duties: A...
News and Gossip from Queerty
We all remember Karamo Brown for being the first openly gay black man in Real World history, and now he’s back with a new reality TV show on TvOne. The Next 15 follows Brown and other reality stars as they search for their next 15 minutes of fame. The show also stars Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Claudia [...]
You might (keyword: might) know Ellis Lacy from his stint as an X Factor U.K. contestant (he did not win), but chances are you’ll remember the name a bit better after taking a gander at the revealing pictures he’s cast into the webisphere. If you want a brush-up, here’s his rather lackluster X Factor audition, a boring cover [...]
A New Zealand politician got much more than he asked for during a television interview about a controversial economic agreement. Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce was slapped in the face by a dildo while talking up the controversial and secretive Trans Pacific Partnership. An off-camera protestor threw the dildo and hit Joyce square in the chin [...]
It’s a darned Sapphic week in home entertainment, with a little 007 SPECTRE action thrown in for bombast. Daniel Craig’s James Bond finally gets to the bottom of a criminal conspiracy in Spectre, Lily Tomlin plays a non-nonsense lesbian who comes to her granddaughter’s aid in Grandma, and a lesbian tries to break her cycle [...]
Any fan of ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder knows that the success of the show is thanks to a potent cocktail of scandalous intrigue with enough sex appeal pumped through the vents to make you dizzy. But the sweaty, hormonal bodies that end up beamed through your HDTV aren’t exactly an accurate representation of the mood [...]
A San Francisco man who was recently gay bashed shared a powerful video on Facebook that is going viral. Jeffrey Lafayette says he was attacked by over 20 people, and that the attack was triggered by his decision to wear white pants (he dryly mentions in the video the bashing had “nothing to do with Labor Day”). But those are [...]
Austin Lacey, an eighth-grade student at Ethan Chase Middle School in Menifee, California, found himself in hot water for dressing like a Frozen princess for the school’s “Disney Day.” School officials deemed it “inappropriate” and confiscated the costume. “This action was taken in accordance with district policies. At no time was there an indication that [...]
On behalf of my arms and nipples, I feel the need to publicly apologize for the effects felt by one of our audience members on a dark winter night in New York City.” — Actor Russell Tovey responding to recent reports that his shirtless scene in the Broadway production of A View 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.
