​'Super' Ginger Men Wanted For Red Hot 2022 Calendar

Male models are wanted for a new 2022 calendar - though not just any old blokes, but... 'Super Gingers'.

The Super Gingers 2022 Calendar has launched its Kickstarter campaign, having raised more than £11,000 or its £15,000 goal.

With promises of the 'hottest' red heads out there, the calendar will celebrate 'the most intense ginger locks you have ever seen'.

And the organisers need models for the project - 12 of them, to be precise - meaning if you're a flame-haired hottie then now's your time to step forward.

A description on the Kickstarter page says: "This is the year of the SUPER GINGERS. 12 of the hottest guys with the boldest and most striking orange hair on planet earth star in our most confident and editorial calendar to date.

"Inspired by the decade that brought excess, glamour, sex, MTV, tabloid drama and the rise of the Supermodel, we are making it over the top, we are bringing back the 90's.

"Auburn? Strawberry blond? Forget about it. We want NEON ORANGE. It's time for the SUPER GINGERS."

This year's calendar is expected to be the most successful campaign in the last nine years of Red Hot - a movement from photographer Thomas Knights, which aims to change the landscape for redheads through 'a series of art books, calendars and photographic exhibitions'.

He said: "In society and somewhat within the ginger community, there has always been a bit of a hierarchy. Boys born with neon orange hair were classed as the unfortunates. If a child was born with auburn hair, like myself, people would say in a backhanded compliment 'at least he doesn't have that bright orange hair'.

"Well, in the world of Red Hot, we like to flip the switch. We think this extremely rare, bright orange hair colour should be celebrated. We think they are the ultimate redheads, superhuman, brightening up the world and bringing colour everywhere they go. To us, they are superheroes, they are the Super Gingers."

Any Super Gingers hoping to make it into the calendar can apply by sending a clear image of their face, hair and body in a message to the Red Hot Instagram page - and will need to be available to shoot in London in May.
