Mensch vs. Meshuggah: Jewish Male Pinup Calendar Competition Gets Litigious

Naughty and Nice Jewish Pinup

There are not one, but two Jewish male pin-up calendars available for purchase to fulfill your need for some kosher beef. First, there's Adam Cohen's "Nice Jewish Guys," which he started in 2011 and fills with pictures of charming, smiling, fully-clothed Jewish men, showing the sweeter side of God's chosen people. Then came Duncan Pflaster's "Naughty Jewish Boys" featuring young men, yarmulkes, and little else which Pflaster created to counter the "emasculating" stereotypes and discouraged outward sexuality of Jewish men and plans to release it this fall.

Despite the discrete tastes between the two calendars, Cohen felt that the name of Pflaster's calendar too closely resembled his own and had his lawyer issue a letter to Pflaster, requesting that he cease infringing on Cohen's trademark. Pflaster has countered that he doesn't think that consumers will be confused by the two calendars, calling the claim of trademark infringement "weak" and has no plans to stop making his calendar. Cohen has not commented further on the dispute, but his lawyer said that they consider the issue ongoing.

War Veteran Turned Underwear Model Alex Minsky Becomes The Face Of Jack Adams: VIDEO

Minsky

Last June we reported on Alex Minsky, an Afghanistan War veteran who lost his leg after an IED explosion in 2009 only to become an underwear model several years later.

It was an inspiring story, and Minsky's recovery, both from the explosion and the alcoholism he developed after, was miraculous. The story did not end there, however, as Minsky has now become the face of Jack Adams brand underwear and active wear. 

Check out his endearing (and hot) promo shoot, AFTER THE JUMP...

Barneys New York has partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the LGBT Community Center (The Center) on its spring campaign which features 17 transgender models and "hopes to help break stereotypes and build social acceptance of transgender people."

Additionally, Barneys is donating 10% of all sales from its 11 flagship stores nationwide and Barneys.com on February 11th to the LGBT Community Center in New York City and the National Center for Transgender Equality.

BarneysBarneys writes:

Arin Andrews, Edie Charles, Valentijn de Hingh, Ashley de la Cruz, Sawyer Devuyst, Peche Di, Dezjorn Gauthier, Trevon Haynes, Katie Hill, Eve Lindley, Niki M’nray, Ryley Pogensky, Ines Rau, May Simon, Ahya Taylor, Maxie Neu, and Gisele Xtravaganza. These seventeen extraordinary men and women, transgender individuals with diverse experiences and unique personal stories, are the faces of Barneys New York’s Spring 2014 campaign: Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters, which launches today exclusively on The Window.

Shot by iconic photographer Bruce Weber in New York City, many were photographed and filmed surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. By depicting these human connections, Weber was able to represent both the struggles and triumphs a trans person may face in relation to their gender identity.

4_barneysAs part of the campaign, Barneys is publishing interviews and videos about the participants, like Katie Hill and Arin Andrews in the photo at the top of the page. They write:

Katie was the first transgender student to graduate from her Oklahoma high school in 2012, and the former couple—they remain close friends—first got together when they met at a transgender support group. Their courage, admirable sense of self, and determination to help others who have shared their experiences have made them incredible role models—not only for the many young people in the trans community, but for us all.
