Australia is Holding a Ginger Pride Rally

Red-heads are finally getting the recognition they deserve!

Have you ever felt marginalised because of your hair colour? If yes, chances are you're a ginger!

Gingers have had it pretty tough for a while now. They are particularly vulnerable to sun burn, and are often forced to suffer through lame jokes about being "fiery". As a group, they probably reached peak humiliation in 2005 when South Park declared they had no souls

However, the day has come for red-heads to rise up and party, with Australia's first 'Ginger Pride Rally' in Melbourne. 

"It’s no secret that gingers are used to being teased for their flaming locks and freckles, experiencing unfair prejudice and misrepresentation since the dark ages," organiser, Jacqui Pride from Buderim Ginger stated. "It’s time we say enough!”

The "ginger-palooza" will involve a celebratory march, as well as free ginger beer (nudge, nudge - get it?) and live music performances. 

It is not exclusively for red-heads, but the event's organisers will kindly provide non-ginger guests with coloured hair spray "so you can experience being part of one of the most exclusive clubs in the world."

The event is supported by Australia's peak ginger body - Red and Nearly Ginger Association (R.A.N.G.A) - and Bully Zero, an anti-bullying charity, which kindly asks you donate a gold coin on the day.

The Ginger Pride Rally will take place on April 16, where attendees will march from Princes bridge to Federation Square in Melbourne CBD.
