The 4th of March is Weird Pride Day.
This is a day for people to embrace their weirdness, and reject the stigma associated with being weird. To publicly express pride in the things that make us weird, and to celebrate the diversity of humankind.
Many people need desperately to receive this message: ‘I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.’– Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake
On this day you are invited to write and talk, make art and videos about what people think is weird about you – and why (and how) you accept these things about yourself.
This could include
- Calls to action
- How to be weird safely
You could also run Weird Pride events, online or in person.
We will aim to collect content here that is shared on any platform using the #WeirdPrideDay hashtag.
