But who is Vik?
We like to refer to Vik as ‘Glorious Leader’ – only half joking, of course. He’s usually a jolly and perky guy, with just a hint of creepiness. He’s known to throw infamously amazing parties, and has seemingly endless patience for the failings of his friends and colleagues. We attribute this to his incredible willpower, or possibly sheer stubbornness.
He is also known to give great advice when consulted: he isn’t afraid to offend and dishes out the raw truth – “Sugarcoating is for babies,” he often says to his distraught friends.
The man behind Vik’s character is the administrator of the GayGeek website – he likes to be known as the overlord.
