Hey, gorgeous. Yeah, you! We have some very exciting news for you today. We know, we know — there’s been a lot of truly exciting news going on here at Autostraddle dot com recently. How can we possibly have anymore?! Well truthfully we dunno, but we do, it’s like magic, and it’s wonderful, and everyone is going to be really psyched.

Because it’s that time of year again.

What time of year, you may ask?

Time to pick 12 crazysexycool humans to fill up the 2014 Autostraddle Calendar, of course!

That’s right, folks. While we’re still swooning over the double October post (and actually, all the Calendar Girls posts ever) Photographer Robin Roemer and Stylist Sara Medd are ready to go at it again, and that means they need some models! Casting for the 2014 Autostraddle Calendar Girls is now. Will you apply? We hope so. Your hair looks really good today, just sayin’.

How to Apply

+

We are looking for queer women of all ages and sizes to represent our amazing community for this annual monthly devotional. This could be you!

Important: The shoot will take place in LA on Saturday, December 8, so you must be able to get to California and be available on that date to be considered.

Please fill out the Calendar Girls Application and send a tasteful photo or two of yourself to robin [at] autostraddle [dot] com. Head shots are great, but in order to choose the most diverse group of women, a full length or 3/4 length image is the most helpful!

The deadline for submitting your application is October 22.

We look forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces in our inboxes. Models will be chosen and notified by November 1. If you aren’t chosen for one of the 12 spots, we still want you to know how beautiful you are to us and how brave you are for applying!

Cheers to the Calendar Girls of the past, present and future, and cheers to 2014 — it’s gonna be a beautiful year, we just know it.

apply to be an autostraddle calendar girl!

    Can I put in a request for some bi/pan/generally queer girls, since it’s open to all queer women? I’m pretty sure most if not all of the previous calendar girls have been ‘proper’ lesbians.

    (Despite being a reasonably androgynous bisexual lady, I tend to feel a little ostracized from the queer community for being attached to a man.)

    I hope that we actually get some real size diversity in the next calendar. This isn’t a complaint, I love the diversity that you do promote, I just know I would be more likely to apply if I saw that you accept plus size models (like real plus size, 18-20, not calling size 14 plus size like other modeling situations do).

      I’m just going to put it out there that it’s really hard to show a full range of body diversity in 12 month calendar (I think it would be great too!) but ALSO that they can’t take people who don’t apply.

      So you should probably apply, if it’s something you’ve been considering. If they’re not getting applications from plus size women I’m not sure how…they…can be in the calendar. And I think they CLEARLY want body diversity (read statement about the full length shots).

      Basically what I’m saying is what I’ve been saying all along–if you think the Autostraddle calendars are missing some form of diversity, try to fix it by being part of it!
