Netflix Ginger Pride Rally In Melbourne
Melbourne held its first Ginger Pride Rally, taking its global step to fighting ‘gingerism’. They cop it from all angles with the names and ridicule, all of which seem to slip under the radar in the battle against professional and social prejudice and isolation. BUT, with this rally, the gingers of Australia stepped-up to the plate and reclaimed the slings and stones people use against them and turned it into something good.
Netflix even cottoned-on to this and pulled together a list of some of its most loved series that star and feature some of Hollywood’s most famous redheads.
Aaron Webb, co-founder of RANGA (Red and Nearly Ginger Association) says that it’s not cool to discriminate people due to their race, gender, sexuality or skin colour, but in Australian culture, people still find it funny to tease redheads.
But he says rather than asking people to stop, people with ginger hair should celebrate their difference.
