Geek Pride Day

Geek Pride Day

People are old enough to recall when the term “geek” was used to denigrate someone who was pale, unathletic, had few friends, and could only do indoor activities in their underwear. The meaning of “geek” has changed over time and it now refers to someone who is passionate about a particular subject, such as mathematics, fantasy literature, science fiction films, or video games. It sounds cool, doesn‚Äôt it? Why not celebrate all geeks around the world on Geek Pride Day?

Geek Pride Day: Let Your Geek Flag Fly!

You can celebrate your geeky friends, whether you are a geeky geek in the closet or proud geek. Geek chic is a term that’s used all over society. This just shows how cool it is to be a geek! Geek Pride Day allows you to show off your geeky side and be unapologetic about it. You can dress in whatever style you want, or you can geek out and learn math all day. Geek Pride Day has no boundaries, so let your geek side run wild!

In 2006, German Martinez, a Spanish blogger, suggested that a day be dedicated to geekiness. He chose to coincide with Star Wars’ 1977 release. Geek Pride Day quickly spread across the internet. It was soon noticed by mainstream media. In Madrid, 300 geeks participated in a game of human Pacman. This was one of the many events that were held to celebrate this day. The basic rights and responsibilities of geeks were also listed. These rights include the “right to not like football” and “the right not to be “in-style”. The responsibilities include “attend every geeky movie opening night” and “buy every geeky book before any other person”.

Geek Pride Day in the United States was first celebrated in 2008. One year later, 2009 was the year that news of the event reached Science Channel. Science Channel aired special programming on May 25, 2009. Geek Pride Day was celebrated in Canada, Hungary and Israel in 2010. In Gothenburg, Sweden, there was a Geek Pride Parade in 2013.

This day is for geeks who identify themselves as geeks. It’s your chance to share with the world your passions and hobbies. Geek Pride Day celebrations are held in many countries around the globe. Why not join one? Geek Pride Day is a great opportunity to make new friends and share your geeky interests.

Many people are afraid to let their geek side out. Geek Pride Day doesn’t mean you have to go out in public and dress up in crazy costumes if you feel uncomfortable. If you feel more comfortable staying at home with your closest friends and family, that is a good option. It is likely that your geek friends feel the exact same way, so it would be more comfortable for them to celebrate at home.

If you are unable to attend the Geek Pride Day celebration, or feel that it is not for you, then inviting some geeks to your home could be a great idea. Your little gathering will be filled with everything geeky, from rewatching Star Wars to trading limited edition collectibles to playing Dungeons and Dragons.

You might consider sharing your passion for a subject with your partner or friend if you feel brave. You can bet that he/she won’t be as passionate about it as yours, but who knows? Maybe your efforts will lead to Geekdom becoming a citizen! Stranger things have occurred!

Geek Pride Day is a great opportunity to try out some unusual and fun activities that you might not normally do. Live tweeting your favorite movie is one of the most fun activities you can do. You might have even sat down and watched Star Wars while tweeting your commentary. It would be amazing at the amount of interaction you might get online with your tempting tweets!

Geek Pride is a great way to be creative and crafty. Even if your skills are not the best, this is the time to get creative and make a mess of the project you’ve always wanted to do.

Although it might seem extreme, why not get a tattoo in honor of geek pride day? You might have wanted the symbol Pi on your body for years, or you want a way to keep track of your favorite element from the periodic table. You will have a strong memory of Geek Pride Day if you get a tattoo.

If you’re in a relationship that involves geeks, why not ask them to marry? Geek Pride Day is a great way to be happy together and celebrate your geekiness!
