Now in its 6th year, the unstoppable Red Hot project heads to Muscle Beach, Los Angeles, bringing together America's hottest ginger jocks from across the United States.
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.
SAY HELLO TO THE BOYS :)
NEW 'MUSCLE BEACH' UNDERWEAR RANGE
Set to be our biggest year to date, we also bring you an exclusive first look at our new Red Hot underwear range which features in the calendar. The red, white and blue, jockstrap, trunk and brief are available as a £40 reward, exclusively to YOU on kickstarter!
5 YEARS OF CHARITY CALENDARS
Through sales of 5 previous calendars and 2 coffee table books, Red Hot has raised over £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 your 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.
