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.
