Happy Geek Pride Day 2016!

The staff of Fanbase Press would like to wish you a very happy Geek Pride Day! As the website that celebrates fandom in all of its diverse forms, we would be remiss if we did not inform our readers about one of the most important days of the year.

Every May 25th, geeks around the world continue an initiative to celebrate and promote geek culture. As many of you may know, May 25th was selected as it was the release date of the first Star Wars film in 1977. Tim McEachern in Albany, NY, first organized unconnected events called Geek Pride Festival and/or Geek Pride Day in 1998, and the events spread throughout America and the rest of the world.

Revel in your geekiness today and every day! Enjoy today by celebrating your favorite fandom, learning about a new one from a friend or colleague, and taking comfort in the fact that your enthusiasm for all things fan-related is a shared experience across the globe.
