In this Geeks talk sexy, we will de-construct what it means to be in a relationship. In a frank, geeky and enlightening way, we will explore the notion of relationships between one person and another.

  • How do you decide you’re in a relationship?
  • At what date do you pose questions?
  • How do you deal with the differences?
  • What kind of life hacks do you apply to relationships?
  • Can you apply agile methodology to relationships?

Then when you think we’ve gone too deep, we’ll be thinking way outside the box by exploring what its like to have a relationship not based on the concept of monogamy.

This is the fourth Geeks Talk Sexy event, please take a look at are past events to see what this event is about.

After the success of Geeks Talk Sexy part 2, its now the time for the geeks talk sexy flash light to cast a light on the subject of being Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transsexual in geek culture in 2011. We’ll be looking at the attitudes of there fellow geeks and how the infighting causes even more confusion. We’ll also be asking the same question we asked of our straight people, how do you meet people / how have you met people?

Ben Light, (@doggyb) Professor of Digital Media at the University of Salford, is well known for his views on LGBT issues and regularly talks about how LGBT people are treated in greater society.

Join us for an evening of fun discussions, take a tour of the stories everyone should know, get ready for your 60-seconds-rant, find out how other geeks meet their dream partners, figure out the DOs and DON’Ts of geeky dating, and hear about the good dates, the bad dates, and the pretty f***ing awful dates.

We have learned from the first event and listened to your feedback – be prepared for even more fun & insights.

* Disclaimer: We are fully aware that this title is only a vague approximation to reality and that gender is not just binary. We are in no way assuming that there are only straight, cis, monogamous, male or female geeks in this community. For the purpose of this talk we picked the most obvious intersection for arising problems, which is the role of women in the geek community that is usually only discussed from a professional point of view. We hope this decision does not offend anyone and that people of all genders and orientations join us for the talk. Please do get in touch if you have got serious concerns.
