|'Dirty Boys' calendar raises funds for homeless LGBT youth|

Nothing says, "look at us, we're raising money for homeless LGBT youth," quite like 13 months of local fetish-loving guys in various, um, positions.
I guess if anything is true, it's that sex sells, even for charity.
At least that's the hope of the folks behind the 2012-2013 "Dirty Boys" calendar.
After five years of fundraising for Bikers for Babies and the March of Dimes, "Dirty Boys" calendar coordinator Lizzy Fountain, who "can be found holding up a bar at the Atlanta Eagle with her brothers and sisters of the Panther L/L," was a photographer without a cause. About half way through the project, she received word that the Atlanta chapter of Bikers for Babies was being shut down.
When Fountain, who is bisexual, approached her photographers and models with the idea to continue, everyone soldiered on with the intention of donating proceeds to Lost-N-Found Youth, Atlanta's homeless LGBT youth advocacy organization.
You'll recognize a lot of the pin-up boys: cover stud Sir Alan Penrod, Pup NITRO, Chandler Bearden, Wayne Turpin, Peep Peep of Le Sexoflex and even transman Dana Prosser, who we profiled for totally different reasons back in 2010.
You can meet the models during this year's Black and Blue weekend at the Atlanta Eagle, Friday, Aug. 10 - Sunday, Aug. 12. The leather and kink weekend includes contests for Mr. Southeast Leather Sir and Leather Boy along with Mr. Southeast Rubber and Community Bootblack.
Calendars are $20 to pick up at local events in the Atlanta area, but can be shipped for an additional $6 (up to two calendars).
