Some people are old enough to remember when being called a geek was derogatory and meant that you were probably pale, non-athletic, wore thick glasses, had almost no friends, and were only good at activities that could be done indoors on a chair in your underwear. Thankfully, the word “geek” has evolved greatly over the years, and now usually means a person who is fascinated with a certain complicated subject—be it mathematics, video games, fantasy literature, science fiction films or one of many others—and knows almost everything there is to know about it. That actually sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? So why not celebrate all of the geeks in this world this Geek Pride Day?
If you identify as a geek, this day is your day to show the world how proud you are to have interests and hobbies that are truly important to you. With Geek Pride Day celebrations being held in quite a few countries around the world, why not take part in one?
