Calling ATL gays. Are you ‘Mascular’ enough?

Add this share

Tired of hairless twinks? Want your gay man meat in all its glorious shapes, sizes and hair patterns? Photographer Vincent Keith and his digital Mascular magazine contributors see your desire and raise you one with a worldwide call for sexy gay hunks.

Mascular (top photo) is to the usual gay nude as Scruff is to Grindr. That is to say, it’s fuzzier and less coiffed and rougher around the edges. And just as sexy, if not moreso.

Suffice it to say that Atlanta has what it takes to become an integral part of Mascular. So is it Atlanta’s “Rough Gods” gone global? Pretty much. Think of it as a monthly fix of what you loved about gay Atlanta’s hairy, hunky Hipstamatic Hotties.

But before you start submitting images as a photographer or model and become one of hundreds of global contributors to Mascular's monthly digital editions, Keith breaks down his vision.

I created Mascular Magazine to “Celebrate masculine art and the men who create it.” I hoped that having a platform to display and share our creativity would be a catalyst for getting men to start creating again. …

Even if the works weren’t ultimately published, the act of getting out there and doing something creative would be a benefit in itself. It seems to have struck a chord. So far we have had hundreds of submissions and have published the works of about 150 artists. …

People from all over the world read the magazine and contribute their works. It’s become a form of creative communication. A Kansas farmer can experience the creative works of an Israeli artist or a Korean photographer can share his sense of isolation with a Mexican photographer who is confronting his issues with religion. I love that!

Each issue of the magazine has a new (and hot) theme. So far, Mascular has explored “nature,” “relationships,” “travel,” “black,” “water,” and “portraits.” The theme for the next issue is “fetish.” Submit yours via e-mail for consideration by Feb. 24 to make the next issue, and keep an eye on the mag for your prurient personal interests as well.
