These fiery gingers are so hot they’ll melt your popsicle.
The Red Hot calendar is back for its fifth year, and the class of 2018 is ready to strip down for Ben Cohen’s STANDUP Foundation. The STANDUP Foundation supports organizations doing real-world work to end bullying — especially in the LGBT+ community.
This year’s calendar is all about the Brits. It features 12 red-headed hunks who are more than happy to show off their goods.
For 2018, Red Hot teamed up with Chappy, a new dating app for men who like men, to produce an interactive experience. On the first of each month, users can access behind the scenes footage of each of the models on the Chappy website. All they have to do is enter the unique code printed on the inside of their calendars.
“At Red Hot we want people to feel proud of what makes them different,” said art director Elliott James Frieze.
“So, to celebrate the launch of the Red Hot British Boys 2018 calendar, we have teamed up with Chappy, the app that aims to challenge the perception of gay dating.”
Additionally, to mark the launch of the new calendar, Red Hot is hosting a launch party on October 25, at the L’Escargot members club in London.
“We have pulled out all the stops to make this one of our biggest and most exciting launch events,” said Red Hot photographer Thomas Knights.
“It is our very own Red Hot house party, filled to the brim with hot ginger men … and you are all invited.”
If you’d like to attend the event, there are a limited number of tickets available online. Plus, you can pre-order your 2018 calendar here.
