Gay Atlanta photographer Tim Wilkerson has done it again.
He’s the photographic genius behind “Georgia Heat,” the 2009 edition of the firefighter calendar for the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation, which helps burn survivors in their recovery.
The calendars at $15 and help raise fund for the foundation. So pick one up and check out who might just be riding to your rescue the next time you dial 9-1-1. The abs on some of these guys are simply amazing.
Not for nothing, Project Q Atlanta tried weeks ago to get photos from the calendar and do our part for charity by raising awareness of the calendar. And hello, we understand the market for the calendar.
But the PR flaks for the foundation got nervous when informed we’re a site for gay and lesbian Atlantans. They hemmed and hawed and ultimately backed away from us like we were, ironically, too hot for their (straight) hands to handle.
The foundation, though, is a worthy cause. And the firefighters are, well, hot. (An item in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution offers a few more photos from the calendar.)
