The infamous meat NAKED Calendar is back for 2019!

12 regular guys of different shapes, sizes, ages and backgrounds   have stripped off to prove that real men have got it going on.
 
Adrian, who has published the gay pin-up zine meat since 2010 says his portraits of men “attempts to redefine what it is to be a sexy gay man. Representing our community is always going to be a work in progress but the meat calendar is a great opportunity to celebrate the bodies of real men.”
 
South Londoner Darren didn’t hesitate in signing up and sees his calendar cover image making a statement saying, “Gay media tends to focus on a very specific body type and that doesn’t always make me feel that comfortable with my own body. I thought what better way to combat that by getting my kit off.”
 
East Londoner Luis also found his photo shoot empowering and says, “Meat (and Adrian) gave me the confidence to appear as I am. If we don’t show other perspectives, we’ll always believe that (gay) men’s bodies are just like the ones we see in every other gay magazine.”
 
North Londoner Nick needed no persuasion to ‘drop trou ‘ saying, “I love Adrian’s work and I jumped at the chance to get involved.” He’s also thrilled with the images, which will also appear in the accompanying issue of the print zine ‘meat naked’ and says
“They’re an honest reflection of where I am right now.   Seeing the end result has definitely increased my confidence and acceptance of myself, flaws and all.”
 
South East London couples Darren and Paul were keen to defy the stereotypes of older gay men, saying, “We’re either perceived as daddy potential or over the hill.   The ideal is portrayed through the media channels we all so readily interact with as muscled, smooth and tanned.  The reality is we’re all shapes, sizes and ages too.  Now is the time to embrace our differences.’
