I can hardly believe that I’m blogging about this but –
Did you know that there is going to be a Ginger Pride Walk through the centre of Edinburgh on August 10th? You can read about it here.
Obviously it is all very tongue in cheek but there is no doubt that people, particularly schoolchildren, do get bullied just because they have ginger/red hair. I’m sure it is a hangover from the days when we were overcome by the Romans and the Celts ended up being pushed to the fringes of Britain, Celts were more likely to have red hair. So those nutty enough to poke fun at someone because of a colour are really siding with the Romans.
The march is completely open to people not lucky enough to have red hair too. Red wigs will be provided if you want to show solidarity! Have a look here.
The Ginger Pride Walk takes place August 10th starting at 11 o’clock outside Balmoral Hotel. Will I be too busy?
