The 12 hot, ginger hunks who are starring in the new Red Hot American Boys calendar have been revealed.
Now in its sixth year, the unstoppable Red Hot project has headed to Muscle Beach, Los Angeles, to bring together America's hottest ginger jocks from across the United States for a 2019 calendar.
Photographer Thomas Knights and Art Director Elliott James Freize have selected 12 of America's sexiest redheads from their online model search, using Instagram and Facebook to discover the hottest new talent.
And they’ve picked some extremely hot, hot men. Check them out now:
The project has been successfully rebranding the ginger male stereotype since 2013 with five previous calendars, two coﬀee table books and a global touring exhibition, raising more than £55,000 for various charities including: The Diana Award, Terrence Higgins Trust, Elton John Aids Foundation, and The Anti-Bullying Alliance.
This year’s calendar raises funds for Athlete Ally, a charity that believes that everyone should have equal access, opportunity, and experience in sports — regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
Their mission is to end homophobia and transphobia in sport and to activate the athletic community to exercise their leadership to champion LGBTQ equality.
Set to be Red Hot’s biggest year to date, the duo are also launching a new Red Hot underwear range, aptly named ‘Muscle Beach’ which features in the calendar. You can buy the new calendar here.
