OCLS Firmly Opposes Hatred, Racism and Intolerance

The past week has been a trying time for our country, and for our community. We know that many of our families, friends, colleagues and leaders are struggling with feelings of fear, sadness and frustration in the week since Mr. George Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer.

Geek Pride Day

“Being a nerd is not about what you love, it’s about the way that you love it.” – Wil Wheaton

Geek Pride Day (Día del orgullo friki) was first proposed and organized on May 25, 2006 by Spanish blogger Germán Martínez as a celebration of all things geeky. What started as a small, local meetup soon spread to Madrid and cities across Europe. The day was first officially celebrated in the United States in 2008 and has since spread to across the country, commemorated with parades, parties, virtual events and marathons of Firefly.
