Although in the Netherlands the redhead festival is now a solid tradition, with the tenth Roodharigendag festival taking place this year, us Britons haven’t given our ginger people the love and attention they so rightfully deserve for years of school ground bullying and painstakingly informing tormenters that carrot tops are, in fact, green? *Frustrated sigh*.
However, the redhead festival is ready and happening, with event-organiser Stuart Parry planning the pride day in Plymouth. He told Plymouth Herald: “I wonder if we’re approaching a time when bullying gingers is over […] When I was much younger and out at a night club a young lady came up to me and said ‘wow, your hair is lovely, where did you get it done?’”
So keep a space in your date book in summer 2016, my redheaded comrades, because ginger pride is here! The pride festival will include a gingerbread decorating competition (erm, yum), live music and an opportunity for the ginger kids to let their fiery hair down.
Viva la red revolution!
