October 31st is Undead Pride Day
It's nice to see our country moving in the right direction as far as acceptance of those different than ourselves. Sure, we've got a long way to go to be a completely accepting society, but we're on the right track. Here in New York we see people celebrating diversity all the time. We have the Gay Pride Parade, the Latin American Pride Parade, and those are just two of the more popular ones. However, even with all that, one group has been consistently overlooked...and they're pissed.
The undead have tagged October 31st as Undead Pride Day, and they've launched a website to get their message across. The Official Undead Pride Day website is a place where anyone undead, be they ghouls, banshees, zombies or vampires, can post a message letting the world know it's time they get treated just like everyone else, undead or not.
Cruise on over to the site and check it out. I've gotten a chance to see some of the work uploaded on there, and I guarantee you'll get a chuckle out of it. Also, if you happen to be undead and are inspired by the work of others, feel free to upload your own piece, video, audio or text, and let your voice be heard (even if it is just a guttural growl). Don't forget to follow the movement on Twitter (@undeadprideday). Power to the (undead) people!
