News: Jack Mackenroth Makes Your Year
Okay, so he’s not a porn star, but he could be! Jack Mackenroth has a perfect ass, and he’s sharing it (and the rest of his hunky tattooed body) with the world in his new 2012 calendar. Mackenroth is known for being a Project Runway reality star, but he is also a designer, athlete and HIV/AIDS activist and educator. Each month of his 15-month calendar features a different photographer (including Adam Bouska, Rick Day, Carsten Fleck) and look. “I have amassed such an amazing collection of images that I wanted to put out a calendar that will help to combat the silence and stigma associated with being HIV-positive,” says the 42-year-old Mackenroth, who was diagnosed in 1990. “If I can raise money for HIV/AIDS research, it’s even better.” All proceeds will go to amfAR to help find a cure for AIDS. And look for Mackenroth’s memoir, Making Lemonaids, next year. For more information, visit jackmackenroth.com.
