Happy Nerd Pride Day

Things so strange even I can not make them up.

Geek Pride Day is an initiative which claims the right of every person to be a nerd or a geek. It has been celebrated on May 25 since 2006, celebrating the premiere of the first Star Wars movie in 1977.

It shares the same day as three other science-fiction fan 'holidays' - Towel Day, for fans of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy by Douglas Adams, Star Wars Day, and the Glorious 25 May, for fans of Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

Tim McEachern organized events called Geek Pride Festival and/or Geek Pride Day 1998 to 2000 at a bar in Albany, New York.


So let your Geek Out!!!!
