What is Weird Pride?

Weird Pride is the refusal to be ashamed of things people find ‘weird’.

Top Hat Owl says "If you're going to be weird, be confident about it."

It means taking some pride in the things that make you different from most people: accepting that being seen as weird might be the price for being unapologetically you.

In a society that demands conformity in all sorts of ways, where expressing yourself and caring passionately about things is often viewed as bizarre, owning your weirdness is an act of defiance and a claiming of the right to joy.

Every day should be a Weird Pride Day, but for until that’s possible for everyone, at least we have the 4th of March.
