The laughing prince high-fived his young ginger fan who later said: “He was just like, 'Being a red head is the number one thing a person can ever be’.” We haven’t always been this popular.
Indeed, throughout much of history and in many cultures redheads have been viewed with suspicion and fear – and even killed - because of their hair.
We also encourage good chat and banter on our busy Facebook page.
Redhead Passions gives people who are part of the Redheaded community a place to find one another.
Precise historical reasons are difficult to pinpoint but red hair, it seems, bestows a sense of otherness. In Ancient Egypt, according to the Egyptian historian Manetho, redheaded men were sometimes sacrificed by being burned alive to appease the gods.
Judas, Christ’s betrayer, was often depicted with red hair in Renaissance art.
We think freckles are beautiful and our posters are designed to encourage everyone who has them to be proud.
"Hot for Ginger" sounds like the title of some disgusting daywalker porn, doesn't it?
That's the name chosen to represent an online dating site for redheads and redhead lovers (ew, gross, creepy).
An ability to laugh at oneself is very important (and redheads usually have a great sense of humour), but at the same time there should be a balance of positive publicity towards redheads that will cancel out the nastiness aimed at us by the ignorant few.
One of our aims is to do just that, not just by putting people in touch with awesome and gorgeous gingers, but also by creating a dialogue through our blog, marketing efforts and endorsements.
