Now in its fifth year — with 11 exhibitions, four calendars, two coffee table books, and donations of over £50,000 to various charities under its belt, the global phenomenon known as Red Hot returns, bringing you the hottest British ginger lads in the buff for 2018.
This year, the calendar by photographer Thomas Knights and art director Elliott James Frieze, raises funds for the Ben Cohen STANDUP foundation, a charity that helps connect communities and supports those doing real-world work to eradicate bullying, especially in the LGBTQ community.
“At Red Hot we want people to feel proud of what makes them different. So, to celebrate the launch of the Red Hot British Boys 2018 calendar, we have teamed up with Chappy, the app that aims to challenge the perception of gay dating,” says Elliott James Frieze.
The innovative partnership with Chappy has allowed this year’s calendar to be interactive. On the first of each month, users can access the models’ behind-the-scenes interview video on chappyapp.com by entering a special access code, printed on the page.
The ‘British Boys’ themed calendar, already Red Hot’s most popular calendar to date, launches on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, with an exclusive gala dinner and red carpet event, taking over the entire L’Escargot members club in the heart of Soho, in London.
Thomas Knights tells us, “We have pulled out all the stops to make this one of our biggest and most exciting launch events. It is our very own Red Hot house party, filled to the brim with hot ginger men... and you are all invited.”
With two dance floors, secret rooms, a ginger peepshow, redhead models and celebrities, a calendar signing and red hot cocktails, this is a party not to be missed.
Dinner 6:30 p.m. / Event 9 p.m. L’Escargot, 48 Greek St, Soho, London W1D 4EF A limited number of dinner tickets and event tickets are available now.
The calendar is available to buy right now. And follow the gingers on Facebook here.
