Dubbed Red Love, the event will take place on August 25th in the city of Châteaugiron in the northwestern French region of Brittany. The brains behind the festival is French photographer Pascal Sacleux, a redhead himself who previously held an exhibition to highlight the prejudice.

France is set to stage its very first festival in honor of redheads, aiming to celebrate the minority that has routinely suffered prejudice and mockery. The festival organizers are keen to rise above the sense of exclusion that ginger people have suffered for centuries and prove.
