Newfoundland’s Bearded Mermen Calendar Is Back

Who needs firefighters when you've got mermen?

Who needs firefighter calendars when you can have mermen calendars? A calendar filled with burly, bearded men dressed up as mermen is back again this year after an extremely successful debut last year.

Sales from last year’s calendar brought in $300, 000 and all proceeds went to mental health services. The second calendar proceeds, which will launch on Saturday, will go to Violence Prevention Newfoundland and Labrador, for a project that aims to challenge traditional concepts of masculinity and engage men in violence prevention.

The calendar features 38 models, representing men of different sizes, racial backgrounds, and gender identities.
