Watch - Designer Protest Russian Anti-Gay Laws With Underwear Calendar

Designer Kristof Buntinx is appalled at the treatment of gay people in Russia that he felt moved to take a stand. 'If you do not like the fact that I am homosexual, I can learn to live with it. But to humiliate, attack and torture people is really going too far', he wrote in an open letter on his website.

The designer decided to create men’s boxers that poke fun at the Russian government and it's anti-gay laws by blending the LGBT rainbow with Russian symbol. The underwears are just the beginning for Buntinx. For his "To Russia With Love" campaign, Buntinx is teaming up with photographer Herman Van Gestel to create a calendar of men in the boxers. The calendar is due for release in September.

Check out a behind the scenes video of the calendar shoot by photographer Herman Van Gestel after the jump.

Who Knew You Could Get Deported For Being 'Too Hot'

Meet Omar Borkan Al Gala. He's a photographer, actor, and poet from Dubai — and apparently he was kicked out of Saudi Arabia for being 'too handsome'

Saudi Arabia's Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices deported three men — all delegates from the United Arab Emirates in town for the Janadriyah Festival in Riyadh — because the commission fear that their 'sexiness' would drive the local women of the conservative Islamic nation absolutely wild.

I had a very serious, very intense reaction to Omar's face. So maybe the Commissioner had a point. Check out a few photos of the man deemed too hot for Saudi Arabia after the jump. So what do you guys think? Too hot or sooo not?
