How To Get 100 'RED HOT' Ginger Studs On Your Coffee Table: VIDEOS

Redhot

Photographer Thomas Knights is crowd-funding the creation of a coffee table book comprised of pics from his well-publicized photo exhibit of red-haired men called RED HOT.

Knights funded the original exhibition through Kickstarter and has returned to the funding platform to help create the RED HOT 100 photo book. Of the book, Knights said:

“Many have suffered prejudice or discrimination as a direct result of their red hair. Next to each portrait is a personal quote, adding a layer of heart, humour and triumph to their beautiful image. This is a book that is not only pleasing on the eye, but also holds a mirror up to current perceptions of male beauty and asks the question, why are there so few ginger heroes or heartthrobs in western culture?”

You can see Knights talking about the project and beautiful video footage of his models AFTER THE JUMP…

Photos Of Gay Couples Kissing In Churches Gets NYC Show After Vatican Disapproval

Gay_kiss_catholic_church

When Rome’s Galleria L'Opera tried to artist Gonzalo Orquin’s photographs of gay, lesbian and straight couples kissing in Rome’s Catholic churches, the Vatican threatened legal action and had the showing stopped (the opera cited “security reasons”).

But it looks like those photos will still get a showing in Manhattan’s Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art on April 30.

The New York Daily News reports:

The photos were taken without permission from the churches involved. A Vatican spokesman claimed the photos could “harm the religious sentiment of the faithful.”

Another exhibition from Orquin — this time showing a woman dressed like a priest — was later vandalized.

But in New York, Orquin’s work is receiving a warm welcome. It will be featured in the SoHo-based museum’s window gallery and will be visible to passersby on the street.

Leslie-Lohman Museum Director Hunter O’Hanian said of Orquin’s church photos, “These were very beautiful, simple portraits of same-sex couples in a space that they held sacred and important to them. I hope visitors [who see them] leave with a wonderful feeling of compassion and humanity.”


Tumblr Of The Day: 'Boyfriend Twin' — Men Who Wanted Someone Just Like Them

Twin_boyf_1

"What's sexier than dating yourself?" asks the Tumblr Boyfriend Twin, a photo blog dedicated to pics of boyfriends who look alike. What we're wondering is whether dating yourself is vanity or just self-love.

It's also reminding us of the Urban Dictionary word "dopplebanger" which means "someone you want to have sex with purely because they look similar to another person you want to do," in this instance yourself.

William_leon_1

Meet William Leon (or as they say in Portuguese Guilherme Leão). He is an unfortunately straight, 176 pound, 22-year-old subway security guard in Sao Paulo, Brazil who stands 6 feet tall with green eyes. He recently become an internet heartthrob after being voted as the “hottest subway guard” in a cheeky workplace promotion.

The company that hired him said, “Our custodians of the subway are not only beautiful they are trained in immobilization techniques, first aid and care to the public."

Since winning the contest, he has told reporters, “I’m not able to work because of harassment: ask me for photos, autographs, interviews. [They’re even able] to recognize me out of uniform!"

He has also reportedly worked in China for a brief while as a model. If you want to, you can continue drooling over him at both of his Instagram accounts.
