Barihunks Featured in MÄNNER Magazine
Barihunks will be featured in the upcoming January 2013 issue of MÄNNER magazine, Germany's leading LGBT lifestyle periodical. The feature is called "Zeig mir deinen sixpack!" (Show me your sixpack).
The feature provides a look how opera and sexuality are naturally linked, as well as the gay obsession with the art form. The feature is only available in German, but there are two pages of delicious photos to enjoy. Featured in photos are John Chest, Dan Kempson, Zach Altman, Justin Hopkins, Xavier Edgardo, Zachary Gordin, Randal Turner, Jonathan Estabrooks and Duncan Rock.
Also mentioned in the article is our beloved fellow opera site Parterre.com, who we are eternally grateful to for being an early inspiration to create Barihunks. The article also ties in Lucas Kazan's operatically inspired adult movie "The School for Lovers," which features character names that might be vaguely familiar to opera lovers: Ferrando, Guglielmo, Alfonso, Dorino and Fiorino.

The magazine is available for download through iTunes for your iPad and iPhone, so you can carry these operatic beauties around with you everywhere. The issue will be available on December 18th. Of course, you can also hang them on your wall year around with our calendar:
