With one month to go trans model leads in Men’s Health cover shoot competition
Trans bodybuilder and model Aydian Ethan Dowling is now leading in a competition to win a cover spread for Men’s Health magazine.
Dowling, who recently recreated a famed (almost) naked photo of Maroon 5’s Adam Levine on the cover of FTM magazine, is currently in the lead on Men’s Health’s Ultimate Guy Search.
He is first, leading by nearly forty thousand votes.
The winner of the search, descibed as MH as “fit and fearless, a doer who gives back and leads by example”, wins a cover spread on the magazine.
In a Q&A accompanying Dowling’s photos, he says: “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.”
On his Twitter page, Dowling, from Ohio describes himself as: “An entrepreneur, owner and creator of Point 5cc Clothing, a vlogger, a motivational speaker, an artist, and an advocate for Transgender rights.”
