Today is Geek Pride Day!

May 25 is a relatively new holiday, but it’s getting bigger! It’s Geek Pride Day! Here’s an explanation from Wikipedia:

Geek Pride Day is an initiative to promote geek culture, celebrated on 25 May. The date was chosen as to commemorate the release of the first Star Wars film, A New Hope on 25 May 1977 (see Star Wars Day), but shares the same date as two other similar fan “holidays”: Towel Day, for fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy by Douglas Adams, and the Glorious 25 May for fans of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.

I made a fun little animated post to share. See it here and share it with your GEEK friends! Happy Geek Pride Day!
