Coney Island Pinups

'I Heart Brooklyn Girls' is the self described, "only queer femme swimsuit calendar in the U.S. of A."

Their first calendar- for 2007- featured a different neighborhood and decade for each month. The photos ranged from quite classy (March- Miss Ditmas Park, 1905) to delightfully trashy (September- Miss Bay Ridge, 1985), and are all a lot of fun.

2008's calendar is entirely devoted to Coney Island. The calendar can be both previewed and purchased on the 'I Heart Brooklyn Girls' website. There are several good reasons to pick up the calendar. First of all, the calendar looks good. Secondly - and unlike with most traditional pinup calendars - the project is entirely female controlled, and the women are presented in the way they want to be presented. Thirdly, 10% of the profits from the 2008 calendar go to Coney Island U.S.A.
