Australia to Host First Ginger Pride Rally
It’s sure to be a fiery event.
Aussie redheads have reason to celebrate: Melbourne will host Australia’s first Ginger Pride Rally on April 16, and event that will raise awareness of the group and funds for an anti-bullying foundation called Bully Zero.
The Ginger Net announced the big news on Wednesday, writing on their Facebook page, “Assemble your ginger squad and fly your redhead freak flag high.” Former Big Brother contestant Michael Beveridge will host the celebration of being “the variety and spice of life.”
“Making up just 1-2 percent of the world's population. We are the definition of unique, a rare human unicorn, that cannot be tamed ... except with the sweet soothing music of Ed Sheeran," the website says.
The festival will start at 10:30 a.m. near Alexandra Park in Melbourne City and will march across the Princes Bridge to Federation Square, where “plenty of gingery festivities” await—including ginger beer pong, music by The Vanns (who have a redheaded lead singer), and an alcoholic ginger beer sampling by Buderim Ginger.
