Gingers with and without freckles have held festivals in Europe in a show of pride. The tradition is starting to take hold in the States. The first annual Ginger Pride Festival in San Francisco was cancelled last summer due to bureaucratic red tape (get those permits!) but they still pulled off an after-party celebration. Chicago’s ‘Redhead Days‘ Festival is June 4-5, 2016.
