Atheist Pride Week is 3/20-3/26. Should we celebrate a lack of belief? Is there more to it than that, like being proud that you are free from brainwashing, free to think for yourself? Or is it about "coming out", and letting people know that there's nothing wrong with being an atheist and that we can be good and moral people without religion or belief in god/gods. What are your thoughts atheists?

Actually anon, Atheists take full responsibility for their actions which is something that the religious do not. You sound very bitter!
Personally I have no need for an Atheist pride week because I don't have to deal with the prejudice that my counterparts south of the border deal with on a daily basis.

Oh and there isn't really a parade, that was just something another poster had mentioned and people ran with. While we have made appearences in other parades such as Gay Pride parades we have never had one of our own. Atheist Pride Week mostly consists of changing Avatars on Social Networking sites to an Atheist emblem such as the customary Atheist "A" and just being open about our bleiefs (or lackthereof).
An example of the emblem
