Ginger Pride Walk: Comedian Shawn Hitchins To Lead Redheads In Edinburgh Festival March

Shawn Hitchins’s event on August 10 will see a battalion of redheads descend upon the city to raise awareness of so-called “gingerism” prejudices.

Seeing red: Shawn Hitchins will lead a Ginger Pride walk in Edinburgh

“It’s totally tongue-in-cheek, but in light of the recent attention to bullying and gingerism we can send a message to all that says ‘It Gets Redder’.“

Hitchins will perform his Ginger Nation show at the city’s Fringe Festival.
