Photographer unveils X-rated charity calendar to help fund the rescue of gay men in Chechnya

Fashion Photographer Balthier Corfi and stylist Todd Hanshaw have teamed up to create a stunning charity calendar. The 2018 calendar, which celebrates the male form in all its glory, is being released to raise money for LGBT+ Rainbow Railroad, a non-governmental organization currently leading the campaign to rescue gay men trapped in Chechnya. “Rainbow Railroad receives hundreds of requests for help each year from countries where LGBT individuals are targets of violence. Because the volume of requests is so high, we focus our efforts on assisting LGBT who have faced physical violence or face an imminent threat of violence, imprisonment or death," said the creators. "We have been successful in helping individuals from the Caribbean, Africa, and Middle East where we have local networks to support and validate cases.” Check out some of the images below:
