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.
Garçon Model’s selfie contest is in full swing now that summer has arrived. They are asking fans of their clothing line to take a selfie wearing your favorite Garçon Model underwear / swimwear and upload it with the hashtag #GarconModel to your Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram account for a chance to win a free pair.
They give away one pair of underwear to 3 lucky guys each month so put on your favorite Garçon Model underwear or swimsuit and grab your camera.

I want to dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Everyday this week I have 6AM conference calls with colleagues in China. This handsome photo of Eyal Berkover in Instinct Magazine certainly brightened my morning. Maybe these pictures will help you wake up too.
Here is one more. To see all the photos by photographer Angel Ruiz link here. If you like, you may also follow the handsome Israeli, Eyal, on Instagram, here.
Kevin McDermott is an accomplished photographer who first came to my attention in 2014 when his book, Virgin Island, with Detroit-based model, Todd Sanfield, was released. McDermott is getting attention again for a new book that is available for pre-order called High Line Nudes.
The forthcoming book juxtaposes the male form against impressive and iconic New York City architecture and is now available for pre-order from the publisher, Ten Avenues Press.
