“We started our calendar to raise funds for our club,” begins the gorgeous voiceover in the behind-the-scenes video of the 2016 Warwick Rowers Calendar. “Then we started hearing from a lot of gay men.

Realizing that some guys did mind where homophobia is prevalent, particularly in team sports, they decided to start a charity, Sport Allies, to support youth who are victims of bullying and homophobia.

According to the velvet-voiced narrator, the naked calendar has given the Warwick Rowers a chance to make a point:

These kids are all about embracing everyone regardless of their gender and sexuality, as well as embracing each other sans clothing. And that’s something we can all get on board with. Meanwhile, we should also get on board with 2016: The Return of the Fuzzy Bum.

The Warwick Rowers are back, and these British boys are baring all once again to raise money for gay rights.

The university rowing team have teased their brand new 2016 naked calendar.

Once again, the money raised will go to supporting young people who are challenged by bullying, homophobia or low-self esteem in sport through Sports Allies.

And we have got a few shots to make the wait worthwhile. Some are from their new calendar, some from their new coffee table book, and some are from behind the scenes.

Student Pride

In 2014 University of Warwick students officially launch their Sport Allies scheme. An initiative to promote inclusion and challenge homophobia among young people and has grown out of the success of the “Warwick Rowers” calendar.  This was done as part of the Student Pride 2014, and if you are a student in Northern Ireland what have you done this year for Student Pride 2015?
