Looking to celebrate “ordinary” bodies?
Meatzine‘s 2018 calendar features 12 images of naked men — all different shapes, sizes, and ages.
None of the images will be retouched.
The project aims to end body-shaming in the gay community.
Launched in 2010, the U.K.-based mag touts itself as a “smoking hot celebration” of “real guys”.
Founder/editor Adrian Lourie tells HuffPo he wanted to create “something a bit different.”
Muscular models do “nothing for my self-esteem or my body image,” he says.
That’s why he wanted to showcase “an alternative view” that went against the “prevailing image of gay men as young, with perfect, porn-ready bodies.”
