Some of the Hottest Hotties of the Year

2021 proved to be another bear of a year! With the availability of COVID-19 vaccinations and the semi-return to normalcy in some areas, the world appears to begin healing once again. And although we are not out of the woods quite yet, we are grateful for any progress we can make despite the uncertainty of new variants around the world.

One thing we are fortunate to have had this year is the opportunity to meet incredible people through our Hottie of the Week features. Through detailed interviews and their photo series, we have had privilege of learning about activism, art, and advocacy that amplify the voices of the disabled community, sex workers, the trans community, and queer people of color.

To round off the year, we want to share some of the incomparable and incredibly hot hotties that made 2021 the year of YASSSS!
