Shooting has started for the 2018 Red Hot calendar. Now in its fifth year, the organizers of the annual celebration of ginger men shared a video trailer of a shoot in London along with a new Kickstarter fundraiser to make sure it becomes a reality.
This year’s theme is ‘British Boys’ and proceeds raised will help the fight against homophobic bullying by raising money for the Ben Cohen STANDUP foundation. Below I’ve included the YouTube teaser video if you’ve yet to see it.
Towelroad has put out a call for what they refer to as “exceptional print-worthy images that convey the spirit, the people, and the beauty of America’s greatest gay destination,” a.k.a. Provincetown. The images will be used in their fourth annual edition of Ptown Hacks, and will be distributed all summer in more than 100 businesses across town and online. If you are unfamiliar with this publication you can see their 2016 digital edition here.
If you have images you would like to submit for consideration, email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the words “PTOWN HACKS” in the subject bar and body of your email. The original article on Towleroad can be read here.
This photo captures a moment that has been a long time in the making. I have not lounged beach side since Sergio and I visited Miami in late January to escape Boston’s winter. Little did we know at the time that January and February would be more mild than the start of our spring.
In case you missed it, the blog Accidental Bear shared photos of the very handsome model arlier this week. The photos are fairly revealing or to put it more bluntly, NSFW. However, I think Matteo is incredibly handsome and wanted to share this one in particular. You can see the series in the link below.

Much thanks to the Accidental Bear blog for bringing this magazine and shoot to my attention. Colorado photographer, Lee Faircloth shared provocative photos of the very handsome models Francesc Gascó & Matt Lister.
I’ve selected one of my favorite photographs to tempt you, but you can check out all the photos in the latest issue of Fantastics Mag.
Thomas Knights began his career as a music producer and performer, but these days you are more likely to recognize his solo exhibition, Red Hot, which is an ongoing project to rebrand the ginger male stereotype. The success of the work has resulted in raising funds to end bullying, exhibits in London, Berlin, Amsterdam, New York and Sydney and now his 2017 calendar.
Sound interesting? You can check out Thomas Knights images from the 2017 calendar (note that it is most definitely not work-friendly). Like what you see? You can get yourself a copy of the calendar here.
