If you live in the UK and have been watching Channel 4's love child E4, you might have seen adverts for Albino United. It tells the story of a Tanzanian football team made up of a group of young albino men with the ambition to prove, in a country where albinos are being murdered, that they are able to take part in everyday society.
So I thought to myself, this should be great show...A good mix of football (which i have to say I love), Africa (my home-continent) and Topical issues...so I set a reminder.
Unfortunately 10 minutes into the show, I got sidetracked and ended up on the internet looking for albinism in the fashion world and being a bit of a science geek I also looked up how it occurs.
It is interesting how a tv programme about football has led me to find some absolutely amazing faces that have rocked the fashion world. The likes of Connie Chiu, Diandra Forrest and Shaun Ross prove that beauty definitely exists in all skin tones!

I may attempt to watch the show another time.
