The 2020 Red Hot Calendar is here, and it’s blazing.
The Red Hot Calendar started in 2013 when fashion photographer Thomas Knights decided to photograph as many hot auburn-haired men as he could find. As a ginger himself, Knights set out to help his fiery brothers feel confident and proud of their hair.
“What was once the thing you liked the least about yourself growing up, becomes the main part of your identity; it becomes your calling card,” he said in a statement. “You end up loving being different, standing out, and getting noticed.”
Over the last 6 years, the calendar inspired a book titled the Red Hot 100, and a traveling art exhibit that went to New York, Sydney and Amsterdam. As a result, more than $77,000 have been raised for anti-bullying organizations and other amazing foundations.
This year’s Red Hot European Boys calendar stars 12 redheads from Denmark, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Scotland, and Spain. While some of the photographs feature nudity, all of them feature gorgeous guys with ginger manes.
The proceeds from this year’s calendar go to the Terrence Higgins Trust, a sexual health charity based in the United Kingdom. The Terrence Higgins Trust is known for partnering with Gareth Thomas and Prince Harry to fight the stigma surrounding HIV.
In addition to the European Boys, there’s also a steamier calendar titled Red Hot C*cks, which is loaded with … well, know you. That calendar is raising funds for a testicular cancer charity.
