So the Sun recently posted this amazing article where “real” men strike the pose of the so-called “hot” men in the underwear ads.
For me, this collection of photos only goes to prove to me that my taste is so far from the mainstream: I find the “real” men so much more attractive than their “hot” counterparts. Give me that “real” bear posing for the Calvin Klein ad over Freddie Ljungberg any day of the week!
Give someone a fright this Hallowe’en!
Started by Neil Gaiman in 2010, All Hallow’s Read is an initiative in which people are encouraged to give each other scary books to celebrate Hallowe’en. The books don’t have to be new, and you don’t have to get one in return – just as long as you share a little horror!
Neil Gaiman proposed the event due to the lack of days on the calender which involve giving books to people. We at Gay Geek most certainly support the spreading around of the written word. So, who will you be giving a scary book to this Hallowe’en, and which book do you hope comes your way?
If you want to get involved but aren’t sure what book to give someone, check out the recommendation list on the All Hallow’s Read website.
I’ll just leave these here. I don’t think I really need to say much more, do I?
The new season of “Arrow” begins on the CW (in the USA) on October 9th. I can’t wait for it.
Geekery with man-candy? Yep, I like this show…a lot.

If you live in Melbourne, have a bit of cash to spare, and love seeing fantastic women in sci-fi, You might want to get along to the Women of Sci-fi event, happening this weekend. The special guests are Erin Gray, known for her role as Col Wilma Deering in Buck Rogers, and Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura (aka perfect space queen) in the original, groundbreaking Star Trek series.
You can get your tickets from the Gifts for the Geek website here. They’re a bit pricey, but definitely worth it! This is the sort of event we at Gay Geek love to see, so grab your tickets while you can! (And if you can’t make it to the actual day, Gifts for the Geek are also selling Absentee Packs, with signed photos of the special guests. Don’t miss out!).
If you do manage to get along, and want to let us know how it went, send us an event report to [email protected]!
