The 2017 New York City Taxi Drivers Calendar Is Here!

The 2017 New York City Taxi Drivers Calendar Is Here! - Awkward Galleries

It turns out sexy calendars aren’t just for fire fighters. For the past five years, New York City taxi drivers have been stripping down for a pinup calendar that pokes fun at the traditional pin-up. And it’s even for a good cause. Proceeds from go to University Settlement, a settlement house on the Lower East Side that caters to immigrant and working families. The calendar has raised $50,000 to date.

The calendar began in 2012 when Phillip and Shannon Kirkman got some taxi-driving friends together and made a calendar as a gag gift for a friend. Word quickly spread among the taxi driving community, and the unsolicited submissions rolled in. Now, in addition to having fun and raising money, the calendar’s goal is to show a different side of taxi drivers people might not otherwise see.

Game Face 2

Game Face 2 - Kids

“When I was a kid, I played soccer, and my league always had photographers ready to take action shots of all the players. My parents never bought any. Except this one. Today it’s the only childhood photo my parents show to new boyfriends, family friends, etc. My new boss also found it while vetting my Facebook, (thanks to my sister making it her profile picture), and proceeded to blow it up and tape it all over the office. And now it’s on the Internet.
