Oxford RAG’s 2015 Naked Calendar is now on sale, with organisers having opted for an ‘action shots’ theme featuring athletes baring all in some of Oxford’s most iconic locations.
This year’s edition, which organisers say contains “risqué and fun photos” and will be a “welcome edition to any bedroom wall”, follows the success of the 2014 Blues Naked Calendar that raised over £5,000. The calendars cost £10, and the money raised will be donated for Oxford Homeless Pathways, KEEN, Against Maria Foundation and 28 Too Many, details of which are available on their website.
Organiser Mel Kamalvand told Cherwell, “We decided to go for ‘action shots’ in fun and recognisable Oxford locations. For example, we shot boxers in the Oxford Union chamber, the lacrosse team in Freuds, powerlifters in the Ashmolean, athletics in the Odeon on George Street and so on, in order to do something a bit fresh and different. That’s what makes this year’s edition special and hopefully really exciting.”
The calendar was photographed by Jesus’ Liberty King, who admitted, “Taking the first few naked photos was a bit embarrassing, though after a while I got quite into it — I’d definitely be keen to do something like that again!”
Calendars can be bought from OUSU’s events website.
