Geek Pride Day: The Geek Manifesto

Whatever type of Geek, Nerd, or Dork (or combination thereof) you may be, today is your day! Geek Pride Day is a day to throw off the shackles of scorn and celebrate your uber GeekDorkNerdiness!

May 25th was chosen as Geek Pride Day because it’s the date the first Star Wars film A New Hope premiered in 1977.

1st published in the Spanish paper El Mundo del Siglo Veintiuno in 2006, the Geek Manifesto outlines the basic rights and responsibilities of geeks.
