What Is Geek Pride Day?

Greek Pride Day is a day to promote geek culture and is celebrated annually on May 25th. The date was chosen to coincide with the anniversary of the release of "Star Wars IV: A New Hope."

Geek Pride Day was created by Spanish blogger, Germán Martínez. It originated as a meet-up of 300 people in Madrid, but has since spread to international acknowledgement.

Although the date was chosen because of its "Star Wars" connotations, Geek Pride Day also coincides with Towel Day for "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" fans and the Glorious 25th of May from Terry Pratchett's "Discworld" series.
