About The LoERH

The League of Extraordinary Red Heads was formed innocuously in January 2013 as a social get-together for those with reddish hair sprouting from their scalps and chins. From the moment of its inception, however, conspiracists around the globe have posited that the League is, in reality, “a drinking club with vague plans for world domination.” Only those in the upper echelon of this clandestine fellowship know for sure its purpose.

AgendaHeadquartered in Troy, New York (a.k.a. “Ginger City, USA“), The League assembles twice a year under the guise of conviviality.

Carrot tops, Cheez Doodle orangies, strawberry blondes, auburn-types, distinguished white heads … all gingers are welcome to attend meetings of the League of Extraordinary Red Heads — and that includes transgingers, redbeards, friends & family of the fiery follicled, and fans too! But only those who demonstrate true extraordinaryness shall receive the highly coveted “Member” card. Our ranks include award-winning authors and journalists, college presidents, politicians, mirth-makers, lawyers, biker dudes, farmers, activists, inactivists, actors, barflies, giants, wee people and folks from all walks of life.

Events typically attract more than 125 members and have included Happy Hour socials, a Pumpkin Ale “Toast of the Gingers,” a “Night of the Walking Red” and a documentary screening of “Being Ginger” with Scotland-based filmmaker Scott P. Harris. The highly secretive League of Extraordinary Red Heads has been featured in many news articles, and was authoritatively declared the No. 7 Best Red Head Gathering of 2013 by BuzzFeed.
