Red Hot is trying to ‘rebrand the ginger male stereotype’.
The list has been compiled by Red Hot, an organisation that is trying to “rebrand the ginger male stereotype by showcasing ginger men as sexy and desirable”. The project was started by photographer Thomas Knights and kicked off in 2013.
The organisation has also raised more than £60,000 for various charities, including HIV charity the Terrence Higgins Trust.
Elton John’s placing as the fifth most influential redhead of 2020 comes after a groundbreaking year for the legendary singer-songwriter. Last year, his biopic Rocketman was released to critical acclaim. He is currently planning to retire following his final tour, Farewell Yellow Brick Road, which is due to conclude in New Zealand in 2021.
