The annual Warwick Rowers Calendar has been a staple of godly bodies for thirsty men and women since 2009.

The calendar, which features members of the Warwick rowing team, mostly naked, with only strategically placed objects covering the important bits, has given a voice to LGBTQ+ people in sport. Money raised by the calendar and other products for sale on the Warwick Rowers website is used to challenge homophobia, promote diversity and inclusion in sport, and support amateur and university sports activity. According to their website, the Warwick Rowers project uses nudity as a relevant and effective means to deliver messages about gender and sexual equality.

The 2019 Warwick calendar is now available for pre order and, as usual, it features some breathtakingly beautiful and adventurous shots of the athletes. A very special quest is also making an appearance in this year’s calendar.

Robbie Manson, an Olympic rower and the world record holder for the 2km Men’s Single scull, joined the Warwick boys for their 10-year anniversary calendar campaign and is the centrefold feature of this year’s calendar.

The Warwick Rowers website also has a store where digital products can be downloaded.

Just because we love you, here is a taste from their Facebook page.
