    Thumbs up Hey Ladies... T&T 2004 Calendar

    I don't know about allyuh but this is on my list of "Things to buy in Trini"


    Men of the Oasis


    By Joannah Bharose

    Look out ladies! The roles have been reversed. Trinidad and Tobago’s first all male pin-up calendar is coming to a shop near you.

    But before you rush out, here is a sneak peek on what to expect.

    Fourteen sexy Trini men will introduce the months of 2004 and hopefully leave a lasting impression. Why 14? There’s one for the cover as well as one for January 2005.

    This gives a whole new meaning to local calendars, which traditionally have portrayed women, historical landmarks and the natural fauna and flora of the country.

    But the Oasis calendar carries a different kind of natural local beauty.

    Some of the most handsome and sexy 20-something-year-old men in the country grace the pages of this the historic all male calendar for T&T.

    The creators of the calendar, Ourglass Promotions, are hoping to push more than just the envelope with this publication.



    Part proceeds will go to the Rape Crisis Society and the Child Welfare League.

    Miguel Ward, communications director sees no conflict of interest, as the hot and sexy calendar will help raise money for two worthy causes.

    This could be a good trend or a bad trend, but it won’t be the first time someone took their clothes off, at least some of it, for charity.

    The worldwide trend had finally caught on locally.

    Not that long ago, our calendars were full of images of far away places, historical landmarks, local flora and fauna and even local recipes.

    But that is set to change with the advent of this Oasis calendar.

    The men in this calendar are not to be confused with models, most of them have never modeled or posed like this for the camera publicly.

    Since the visit of the Chippendale dancers in the 90’s Trinidadian women have not had much to scream about until now.

    The 14 men who appear in the sexy publication are all Trinidadians showing a little more than usual and the women of T&T can get a glimpse of them for around $75, when they purchase the calendar.

    According to Ward the calendar took three years to come together.

    “T&T women are starving for some change and this is it,” he said.

    Most of the men, still in their 20s, bare a little bit more than just their handsome faces.

    “We are playing it safe this year, there is something to see, just nothing too risky,” Ward said.

    The small team of creators, who call themselves Ourglass Promotions, comprising photographer Colin Gumbs, Ward and graphic artist Liezelle Ramsoondar, have been working tirelessly to make the first issue a success.

    The magazine will be launched on November 29 as a photographic and calendar exhibition at the 1-2-3-4 Art Gallery at Hotel Normandie from midday to 8 p.m.

    The calendar models who appear with their real names strike a series of sexy poses some wearing less than others, but all for a good cause. Some of them are expected to be present for the launch.

    Ward said the biggest challenge was getting the right shots and selecting the right men.

    But recruiting the pin-up guys was the easy part.

    “We just asked some girls to ask guys if they would and many of the men said yes,” he said.

    He said men would have been suspicious of “ulterior motives if a man approached them.”

    In the end, Ward said they were spoilt for choice and some guys had to be turned down.

    But all is not lost for the guys who got turned down this year.

    “We intend to publish one every year and there will be plenty opportunity,” he said.

    They also made an effort to include men of every race in the calendar, African, White, Chinese, Indian and Mixed.

    “It was a conscious decision to include everyone.” Ward said.

    He added that for a lot of the men starring in this issue the perfect picture emerged in the first test shoot.

    “We were lucky. But we still had to work hard for most of it,” he said.

    It has also been an expensive process for them “as it has been financed out of our own pockets,” he said.

    Their primary market is women between the ages of 18 to 45.

    They intend to have copies on sale at body spas, pharmacies, books stores and tourist shops.
