MC1R, now the magazine.

Gee, now there is a magazine named after that gene I spent so much of my life studying (MC1R). I am not on commission.

A magazine for redheads and their appreciators, MC1R is proof that independents can grow fast by tapping into a clear niche. 

Launched last year in German, the magazine switched to English for issue two when founder Tristan Rodgers realised he’d stumbled across an editorial concept with truly global potential, and this third issue is his biggest and best yet. Smart and sexy (and tastefully NSFW in places) it’s a brilliantly focused read.

  • Ginger vs red: the great debate
  • Tracing the roots of mixed-race redheads
  • Beautiful Gingers – a photographic study
  • A cultural history of redheads
