Are you a ginger male? Would you describe yourself as ‘red hot’? Are you willing to pose shirtless – or even naked? If you answered yes to all of those things, then you need to apply to be in this calendar.
The Red Hot European Boys 2020 calendar promises to feature ’12 mouth-watering redheads’, who will provide buyers with saucy content all year round.
Photographer Thomas Knights and art director Elliott James Frieze filtered through thousands of submissions to find six of Europe’s finest ginger boys – but to ensure each month is filled with a new face, there’s six more left to find.
Take a look at what could be in store for you:
Along with the usual calendar features, like months and dates, the product will include ‘non-explicit nudity’, ‘gorgeous bodies’, ‘handsome faces’ and ‘beach bums’.
But obviously, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Red Hot have managed to get that across by having the models show off their ‘cheeky personalities’, too.
The company only has a few requirements for potential candidates, one of the most important of which is that you be a natural ginger.
They’re also looking for people who are ‘athletic and have an awesome personality’ – so if you think you fit the bill, you can submit a couple of pictures of yourself wearing Red Hot’s underwear to their Instagram account.
If you’re deemed worthy, you could be jetting off to sunny Ibiza in just a few weeks to strut your stuff and bear all in a photoshoot.
I suppose if you’re going to be stripping off, a warm, sunny island in the Mediterranean Sea is the place to do it!
The project is being funded on Kickstarter, where Red Hot are aiming to raise £12,175. With the calendar, the company are supporting the work of the Terrence Higgins Trust, whose mission is to end the transmission of HIV in the UK.
Those who donate to the project can secure themselves a calendar, and even get their hands on some Red Hot underwear of their own!
Red Hot have come a long way since their first art book, Red Hot 100, which was successfully kickstarted in 2014 and raised over £10,000 for charity.
They have since released a second art book, Red Hot II, which raises money for the Diana Award, and more recently they successfully funded the Red Hot British Boys 2018 calendar, and Red Hot American Boys 2019 Calendar.
Could you be the face of the 2020 calendar?
