The Warwick rowers are back, still naked, and still fighting homophobia

The Warwick rowing team is back with a new naked calendar, and are more committed than ever to promoting tolerance and equality.

Regularly stripping off to raise funds for good causes, the team have been crowd-funding, and donating profits to fight homophobia since 2009.

The first calendar came out in 2009, and raised over £100,000. The club has since 2012 donated a portion of its profits, and this year will aim to raise funds for Sport Allies, which is “dedicated to challenging homophobia among young people”


Benefits are offered to those buying the calendar, and the Warwick team’s website states you’ll receive a free wristband with every non-digital order and the first person to donate £1,000 will get a “complimentary signed limited edition print of our very first frontal art nude.”


The latest video promoting the crowdfunding for their campaign is available to view below.
