"Men of the Stacks" is a beefcake calendar featuring hunky librarians, with proceeds to the It Gets Better project.
(Thanks, Fipi Lele!)
YES! So proud to be a librarian.
Not that I’m against the sentiment, but am I the only one worried that “It Gets Better” is going to turn into another “awareness movement”?
Probably, but you’re unique like that.
Do some digging on breast cancer charities, plenty of which exist solely to perpetuate themselves. I’m not saying IGB is such an animal. I’m just hoping it doesn’t become such an animal.

Do you think they told that guy he’d be the only naked man in the whole calendar?
They could have used him for every month and not gotten complaints.
Daamnn. I’d pay a lot of late fees to have him drop the book. Boing Boing really needs to have more softcore hipster porn.
I’m not sure I want to know how that guy marks his place.
Check out that… book!
Your comment actually made me scroll up to see if it was a title I knew. :P
One of those books that you just can’t put down!
It doesn’t get better, just easier to deal with and more complicated, if you’re not murdered or commit suicide.
Is that a pop up book
I wanna go to the library that has a daschund librarian.
Idea of the century! Libraries are seriously undervalued and under represented as the last remaining truly free centers of mass education.
… and sexucation.
Mr Novembers name is Megan? Americans do weird things with boy/girl names.
Well, it’s not commonly used for guys here either. I actually thought he might be trans and that was why the proceeds were going to It Gets Better (not that they need a reason to support GLBT causes, I just thought it would be cool if they were featuring a trans man), but from the description on the calendar site, I think he just had weird parents. His name is pronounced “Meegan.”
yeah, I couldn’t find it as a male name anywhere. Chalk it up to the my kid has to have unique name to make him special type parents.
The story behind the calendar:
It got turned down as a fundraiser for an anti-censorship charity.
