Gay Austin Geeks is a social group for like minded LGBT individuals to get together and have fun.  Focused on board and video gayming, sci-fi/fantasy, and anything else that makes you a geek, we strive to be all inclusive and allow for a fun social outlet for everyone.

Our Meetups are primarily self driven, with the bi-weekly meet and greets for everyone to enjoy and get to know each other.  If you have something you'd like to try and want a group of like minded people to do it with, please, post it as a suggestion!

Also be sure to join our facebook group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/gayaustingeeks/

"Member Dues" are optional, however, if you wish to donate you can become a VIP Member.  More information here: http://www.meetup.com/Gay-Austin-Geeks/messages/boards/thread/38249552

 

Group Rules/Guidelines:

With our quick growth and after having a few..minor issues, I figured it was time to post some guidelines for the group. Most of it is common sense and I have to say, all in all I have been very impressed with everyone all together. But, better safe than sorry, so here goes:

#1 Rule "Don't be a dick" (tm) - Wil Wheaton

#2 POST EVENTS YOU WOULD LIKE EVERYONE TO ATTEND TO OUR MEETUP.COM WEBSITE. Meetup.com/Gay-Austin-Geeks. It is a great resource to get a good group of people together for anything you would like to do. Trust me, I know, I've been doing it for over a year now. But only post things you are comfortable having strangers attend. If you don't want 100 people showing up at your house unexpectedly, I'd make it a private event and just invite those you know. Play around with the RSVP settings, you can always limit the # of people attending.

#3 Stay on topic. We are a geek group, not a religion group, not a political group, etc. I don't mind deviance if it is something that you are passionate about, but be mindful of other peoples views.

#4 This is not Grindr/Adam4Adam/OKCupid (insert dating or hookup site/app here). We are here to socialize and surround ourselves with like minded people. But overt "cruising" of the group will be grounds for removal. Lewd questions (preference in bed, etc etc) are grounds for removal. What happens outside of group functions is your business, and I hope long lasting relationships can be formed. But, if I start hearing "I don't want to go this meetup because so and so is there"..etc etc..etc. Well, I don't want to have that talk. It's just wrong.

#5 If you wish to advertise, sell something, etc. Please do not ask for payment, or participation acknowledgement within the group or make arrangements publicly. I don't mind if it's used as a resource to help people find work, sell an item (preferably something geek and not grandmas pearls) or promote outside events, within reason. But, post it once and then allow people to contact you privately. If it contains a link to a payment site it will be removed. DO NOT SPAM THE GROUP!
Also, feel free to contact me directly with larger events and I would be happy to schedule them (OR, as a member you can) on our meetup site.

#6 NO lewd or obscene pictures and speech. See # 4

#7 If you have any questions, complaints, or comments. Contact Shane directly. Don't post it in the group.

#8 This is a closed group, nothing will broadcast to your friends. That being said, be mindful of your posts, this could change, either by Facebook making changes or by decision of the group.

#9 While this group was started by 1 person and is currently managed by 1 person, it is not a dictatorship. Participate! Be vocal! Tell me what you want/don't want, etc! I do the best I can to make everyone happy, but with nearly 300 members between 2 sites, it's not the easiest thing. I need to hear from you. Shane@gayaustingeeks.com. Don't worry, even if it is a criticism, you won't hurt my feelings. Much

#10 HAVE FUN! Right? Right!
