Heat up with the guys of RED HOT

Posted in: Worth Checking Out
By staff - 13th July 2015

We ran a story a while back about the hunt for red haired guys to be part of an anti-bullying calendar. It’s being released this month. In the meantime you can check out a teaser video from the RED HOT​ team that will warm up a cold winter's day!


British photographer Thomas Knights brought his RED HOT exhibition to Sydney last year as a World AIDS Day initiative.

He’s the author of RED HOT 100, a book which celebrates red-haired male beauty and challenges negative ginger stereotypes.


His trip to Australia prompted a RED HOT: DOWNUNDER competition, which sought steamy ginger-haired men from both New Zealand and Australia.

“Being ginger and male comes with many stigmas attached,” Knights said at the time. “Many are bullied at school and for some, even later in life."

He wants to showcase a positive outlook on the red-haired male, "aiming to re-brand the ginger male stereotype along the way".

The latest RED HOT calendar is being released on July 23 – check out the men who made the cut below.
