Being a redhead is an identity. We are one of the smallest visible minorities on the planet, and at less than 2 percent, that leaves almost 150 million people feeling under-represented and under-served. Whether you have red hair, or you’ve got redheads in your life…this space is for you. We see the world a little bit differently. Welcome to the 2 percent.
Erin Shaw is an award winning journalist and content creator. As a redhead, she’s always felt just a little different. She needs special makeup to appear human under the bright TV lights and could never really be a teacher due to all those florescents. When she travels abroad, locals have asked to have their photos taken WITH HER! Good and bad, being a redhead has shaped her identity, and she knows it’s shaped yours too.
