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

Politics from Good As You
Read: NOM's guide to pressuring lawmakers to ban marriages (while pretending you're doing something good and positive instead)Even though one of the bills for which they are lobbying is, quite literally, one that would alter our U.S. Constitution so that is specifically bans same-sex marriage (H.J. RES 51, Federal Marriage Protection Amendment; Huelskamp), the National Organization For...
As part of today's massive document dump of previously restricted files comes a 1995 memo titled "The Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce." It's astounding how applicable it is to our present political world (and particularly the LGBT fight): [Clinton Library]...
While they don't specifically name the "emerging threat" that is so clearly the basis for this advisory document, the Concerned Women For America do want the nation's churches to make sure they put up all the proper walls before the...
It's hard to sit next to Ralph Reed and be the more anti-gay one. But with this spiel about same-sex marriage posing a bigger threat to America than any outside force, conservative Cal Thomas manages: [Right Wing Watch] I picture...
News and Gossip from Queerty
Latta, SC, may not be the first place you’d expect to find a lesbian police chief, but as a 20-year veteran of the town police force, Crystal Moore has earned the respect of the local citizenry. Except the mayor. Earl Bullard issued an unprecedented seven reprimands in a single day against Moore, who had never […]
Is it too early to predict the Emmy nominees?

HBO has just released a full-length trailer for its […]
Sexual assault charges filed against X-Men director Bryan Singer could virtually disappear overnight, according to TMZ. Speaking with “sources connected with Singer,” TMZ says the director has proof he was not even in Hawaii at the time his accuser, Michael Egan, claims he was repeatedly “anally raped” by him. Egan’s suit alleges the sexual assault […]
Noted androgynous TV personality B. Scott (who came out as transgender amid this controversy) has reportedly lost the $2.5 million lawsuit he brought against BET last year, in which he claimed to have been discriminated against based on his gender expression. Yesterday, Los Angeles Superior Court judge Yvette Palazuelos granted an anti-SLAPP motion that ruled […]
According to a new book chronicling the battle over marriage equality, the lead lawyer defending California’s Proposition 8 before the Supreme Court discovered his daughter was engaged to a woman after he took the case and is now helping to plan her wedding. The book, “Forcing the Spring: Inside the Fight for Marriage Equality,” shows how the […]
Big Brother Canada‘s resident dreamboat Kenny Brain stuffs his undies with socks. Some Grindr-esque selfies featuring Brain’s full package — what I would explicitly describe as a big, beautiful dick — have leaked on omg blog, and after today, this man will be the only Big Brother contestant you’ll need to remember. We most recently […]
Here’s Richard Land, former Southern Baptist Convention leader, speaking on Tony Perkins’ radio show: “I know that the dirty little secret that nobody wants to talk about is that a high percentage of adult male homosexuals in America were sexually molested when they were children. … Anybody who’s a counselor…will tell you that.” No, Richard, anybody who’s […]
Sonoma County came out of the closet a long time ago, so it’s street cred as one of the country’s most gay-friendly destinations is well established. That understood, it probably comes as little surprise that Sonoma County’s towns are home to a number of gay-owned and gay-friendly accommodations. Still, with all the options, knowing where […]
“The number one reason bullies hate their victims is because the victims tell on them,” the flyer reads. “Telling makes the bully want to retaliate. Tell an adult only when a real injury or crime (theft of something valuable) has occurred. Would we keep our friends if we tattled on them?” That’s just one pearl […]
We’d all do well to consider ways in which homophobia and transphobia harm our community in speech, action and thought. And when we notice behavior that works against the cause of bringing us more together as people and instead tears us more apart — whether from within our community or outside of it — we […]

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.
