August is Hot Asian Man Awareness Month

Celebrate by backing the Haikus For Hotties 2018 Calendar.

Attention, please! This is a Very Important Announcement about Hot Asian Men. Did you know that August is Hot Asian Man Awareness Month? It has been declared. Not by coincidence, the annual Haikus For Hotties Calendar is back! From the makers of Haikus With Hotties and Haikus On Hotties, the 2018 calendar features twelve months of Hot Asian Men, carefully curated by our friend Ada Tseng, esteemed Professor of Hotness.

This year, they're inviting fans to participate in the fun. Every three days, during the calendar's Kickstarter campaign, they'll unveil a new photo of a 2018 calendar hottie and invite you to submit a hotness-inspired haiku. They'll publish their favorite one and give each haiku winner a free calendar.

The theme for the 2018 edition will be "Cover Men," with each photo transformed to look like the cover of a magazine -- a nod to the fact that we still rarely see Asian men rocking the covers of Hollywood magazines. It's a fun way to highlight a multitude and variety of Asian men doing cool things in the media.

Check out this behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot with the official Haikus With Hotties ambassadors Yoshi and Peter Sudarso, and the very first female calendar hottie, Anna Akana. (The image is a parody of this Vanity Fair cover with Tom Ford, Keira Knightley and Scarlett Johansson.)

Here are the 2018 calendar hotties they've revealed so far:

So they're currently raising funds to produce the calendar. The goal is to raise $8,000 by August 31. The majority of the money will go towards printing the calendars and to pay their collaborators.

The rest will be donated to a worthy cause. Last year, all profits from sales of Haikus on Hotties were generously donated to support this website. This year, Ada and Co. graciously offered to do the same, but we've instead decided that earnings will be redirected to two organizations whose work I admire and support, the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum (NAPAWF) and the Center for Pacific Asian Family (CPAF).

For more information, and to give to the campaign because you love Hot Asian Men, go to Kickstarter.
