Día del Orgullo Geek (Geek Pride Day)
Description:Geek Pride Day is an initiative to promote geek culture, celebrated annually on 25 May. The date was chosen as to commemorate the 1977 release of Star Wars, 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 25th of May for fans of Terry Pratchett´s Discworld.
The initiative originated in Spain in 2006 as (Spanish: Día del orgullo friki) and spread around the world via the Internet.
While other events with Pride in them refer to the GLBT commmunity and there geeks that identify as GLBT, Geek Pride Day caters to all people who are into geek culture regardless of orientation.
