Gay Rugby Players Take Off Their Clothes To “Connect” With You For Naked 2018 Calendar

The Amsterdam Lowlanders aren't afraid to show a little skin.

Forget pumpkin spice lattes. One of the greatest things about fall is the abundance of athletes who strip down for fundraising calendars for the upcoming year.

The Amsterdam Lowlanders are the latest to announce the release of their 2018 calendar, continuing the tradition of nude poses that were featured in their calendars from 2014 and 2016.

This time around, however, the players have partnered with other teams from within International Gay Rugby, an organization dedicated to gay-inclusive rugby clubs around the world.

The collaboration is meant to support the calendars “Connect” theme, and features the nude athletes posing in front of bridges in Amsterdam to symbolize the fact that “reaching out, connecting and building friendships is the essence of rugby.”
