Aydian Dowling Could Become the First Trans 'Men's Health' Cover Model!

Aydian Dowling could very well become the next cover model for Men’s Health – and he would be the first transgender person to do so!

The bodybuilder is currently in the lead for the magazine’s Ultimate Guy Search with more than double the total votes of the guy in second place at the time of this posting.

“I maintain a healthy lifestyle by making sure my life is in a balance. Just like you eat foods in a balance I do my absolute best to keep my mental mind in connection to my body so they can grow healthy together,” Aydian said in his entry. “The battle that can come with the mirror can be completely dark and engulfing. As a Transgender Male, having a healthy body and mind is my ultimate goal to find peace within my soul. Although I may always have some kind of battle with my body, I continue to work everyday for a happy peace within.”

Aydian has gotten some attention before for his recreation of Adam Levine‘s nude cover pose for a previous magazine shoot.

    Its shoddy work thats why. Nipples are incorrect.. And he’s not hot.. either.

  • Sandy McFarlane

    this is AMAZING

  • Terry Torres

    I’m sure Soyntgo4it was supposed to be on the cover of Men’s Health all along.

  • Soyntgo4it

    I was yup.. Least I know I am all man..

  • Schadenfreude

    I think I would be very disappointed if he was the one winning. Men’s Health is kind of a fitness/gym lifestyle magazine if I understood correctly. He might be very pretty, his transition might be flawless but for a man, he is pretty banal on the body level and he is much more of an LGBT activist than a healthy lifestyle promoter.

    If you want a transman who fits much better for this magazine’s criterias, take at look Shane Ortega. He is in the contest aswell with much less votes unfortunately, the guy is A FUCKING PILE OF MUSCLES and keeps promoting a healthy lifestyle and exercising he is in the US Army and he has been fighting his butt off for equality in the army and he is forced to wear a blue dress, a formal US Army female attire. I think that should be addressed that he goes through that even if he served as a man during some of his deployments in war zones.

    I know voting for him is voting to make a point, but you make it the wrong way if you vote for him. If Aydian wins, I would feel it’s like a “Hey, nice try, it’s the best you can do, you can’t do better but it’s ok”, like you’d stick the shitty drawing of a kid on your fridge as encouragement for good effort to not hurt his feelings but you can’t wait for him to turn his back so you can rip it off and pretend the dog ate it.

    It’s positive discrimination and it sucks. Judge according to someone’s efforts and dedication to the lifestyle, vote for them accordingly, not because you absolutely want to see a transboy pretty face plastered on a men gym magazine. He is way too scrawny to be taken seriously. And he isn’t scrawny because he is FtM, he is scrawny because he isn’t a passionate of this lifestyle, he is passionate activist. And people might think it’s the best FtMs can offer.
