BUTT Goes to the Beach
By Noah Michelson
Just in time for Pride, BUTT magazine has collaborated with American Apparel to create five special limited edition summer beach towels in BUTT’s trademark style -- classic meets contemporary with just the right amount of sleazy thrown in for good measure.
Each black and pink towel features a different life-size guy, three of whom have been featured in past issues of the magazine. Models include artist Brian Kenny (cover star of BUTT #14), fashion design student Juan Jose Quiceno (cover star of BUTT #25), adult film star Arpad Miklos (featured in BUTT #24) -- and introducing composer and lyricist Ernie Lijoi and photographer Devin Elijah.
Each model was photographed by long time BUTT contributor Marcelo Krasilcic.
Check out this exclusive (and adorable) video of Juan and Arpad, courtesy of BUTT:
The 100% cotton oversized towels (31” x 64”) retail for $45 and are available exclusively through American Apparel. The towels can be purchased on line as well as the following select stores worldwide including New York (Soho, Chelsea, The Village), Los Angeles (Little Tokyo), Portland, San Francisco, London, Berlin (Münz Street, Bayreuther Strasse), Paris (Beaurepaire, Marais, Vieille du Temple), and many more.
A portion of sales from each towel will be donated to the Ali Forney Center, a NYC organization providing housing and services to homeless LGBTQ youth.
