Gay Times’ annual Naked Issue was released a couple of weeks ago, and they’ve named it their “Biggest Issue Ever”. Compared to the past issues that I have, I think that may very well be true. Even so, many of the honourees aren’t exactly huge names. Granted, I’m not complaining one bit at the willingness of these beautiful men to strip down for our viewing pleasure, but I’m admittedly slightly disappointed that a few more fan favourites weren’t featured (what’s up, Chris Pratt? NSFW).
This year’s Naked Issue actually went towards raising money for testicular cancer research, and readers were asked to pledge their own donations to Balls to Cancer. My only real issue with Gay Times’ naked issue is their disturbing lack of ethnic diversity in the guys featured. Sure, sure, we all love blue-eyed blondes, but a lot of us would love it just as much to see some men of colour. I mean, yeah, Louis Smith was the cover model, but that’s arguably because he was the biggest name in there.
That said, there was a lot of eye-candy in the magazine and I do recommend getting a copy. Check out some of my favourite shots from the issue after the jump.
