A couple of queer video game tidbits

Mass Effect 3's Commander Shepard

Though I have an entire category dedicated to geeky things not limited to sci fi, technology, comics, video games etc, I don’t get to cover it nearly enough. This is a shame since I’m a pretty out nerd myself. So today I just want to clue you in to two bits of gay gamer news and up the geek cred of this site.

Firstly, [...]

Lewis and Clark brings its Gender Studies Symposium for a 31st time around

Tender Forever performs Friday

For those of us no longer ensconced in the world of academia but who want the opportunity to have thought-provoking discussions on gender and sexuality the annual Lewis and Clark Gender Studies Symposium is the perfect opportunity. This three day exploration, now in its 31st year (whoa, that’s a long time, longer than I’ve been alive) takes place this Wednesday through Friday. (Complete schedule linked below)

The 2012 theme [...]

Technology companies support gay marriage

Several corporations signed on to support Washington's recent passage of gay marriage

Several corporations signed on to support Washington's recent passage of gay marriage

Attitudes toward gay marriage have rapidly progressed in the last two decades, especially on the U.S. West Coast. Since the majority of large-scale American technology companies are headquartered in California and Washington, CEOs and other corporate leaders in that industry have acclimated to the trends. Today, software giants like Microsoft, Amazon and Apple are loudly voicing their [...]

Apple introduces iPhone 4S

So, all of us geekoids were glued to our live gdgt feeds today (apparently it was the only one that didn’t crash) to watch the saga of Apple’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” announcement unfold. Now in the several years I’ve been writing this blog I have followed pretty much every excitable Cupertino announcement, but I have never written about any. I figured tech geeks are so all over it there’s no [...]

Ok Cupid names Portland the most promiscuous city

Portlandia: sexy, geeky, gay. Promiscuity was a dream of the 90s wasn't it?

Portlandia: sexy, geeky, gay. Promiscuity was a dream of the 90s wasn't it?

Ok Cupid is a dating site that has love for not only the gays, lesbians and tragically hip but also for the stats and geekery (see: tragically hip) and they have just named Portland, a lover of all those things as well, the most promiscuous city in the USA. So I guess we “love” each other [...]

Creator Ed Luce in front of his oafy posters and products

I love geeky stuff and yet feel like I don’t get to combine, let alone report on, the intersection of queerness and geekery enough. So, though it’s last minute, I’m pretty excited to blog about this graphic novel creator I found randomly on Queerty this morning.

Ed Luce pens Wuvable Oaf, the story of a “gay, cat-obsessed, Morrissey-loving, [...]

Gaga marketing trades Target for FarmVille

gagaville

When I got this press release in my inbox I thought, at first, it was a spoof from The Onion or something. Not so. Glitter and glamor will, indeed, be coming to your virtual farm. I don’t really know what to say. But my mom will be happy…they’re two of her favorite things…

Anyway, I just thought this was too weird not to share:

Lady Gaga and Zynga today announced [...]
