Geek Pride Day is celebrated on May 25, 2017. The day is an initiative, which originated 2006 in Spain, to promote geek culture. It is celebrated annually. Some people think the events called Geek Pride Festivals or Geek Pride Day, which from 1998 to 2000 were organized by Tim McEachern, lead to today's Geek Pride Day. Germán Martínez, a Spanish blogger, organized the first celebration in 2006, which from then on spread around the world.
May 25 was chosen as the date for Geek Pride Day, as to commemorate the release of the first Star Wars film in 1977. All fans of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" can take the chance and celebrate both Geek Pride Day and Towel Day, which coincide. In case you did not know: geek is a slang term, typically describing an expert or enthusiast or a person obsessed with a hobby or intellectual pursuit. Often people are called geeks, who are kind of peculiar, are overly intellectual, unfashionable, or socially awkward
