Carol of the Nerds

Gay nerd: a nerd who also happens to be gay. Okay, this one is pretty self explanatory, but it is important to note that gay nerds are a rare find and hot gay nerds are even harder to come by. The gay nerd is often similar to, but not to be confused with, the pocket gay (a petite gay person so portable they could 'fit in your pocket.')

He's adorably dorky with his cute glasses, man-bag full of techie gizmos and his huge... I.Q. What could be better than a low-key homo who can wipe out your computer virus, create you a personal Web site for some shameless self promotion and won't mind spending all of his nights at home with you? Well, we can't think of anything either, so delight your nerd with something to get his modem running.

Buy your boy Clocky, the Run-Away Alarm Clock, a clock radio that runs and hides after it goes off, thus ensuring that our little programmer doesn’t get to sleep in, and he may kiss you after he stops being cranky (and takes the thing apart to find out how it works.) Available at

Want to help your nerd update his look without losing his geek-appeal? A gift certificate for a new pair of glasses from Visualeyes is a perfect gift to help him lose those tired old frames for something from the brands of Fendi, Lindberg or Tom Ford. Visit for more information.

If your gay nerd is a hottie - think Clark Kent without a Superman suit under that short-sleeve button down shirt - you might want to buy him his own superhero costume. offers a Hot Gay Nerd t-shirt which reads "Are you a tease?" on the back. So what if converstaion t's are cliche and completely lacking in fashion clout? That's exactly why your nerd will love it.

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
