Aydian Ethan Dowling is on the fast track to become Men’s Health’s first trans cover model. The Oregon artist, entrepreneur and fitness pro is currently sitting in the number one slot in MH’s Ultimate Guy Search, which scores the winner a much-coveted cover.
The magazine says the Ultimate Guy is “fit and fearless, a doer who gives back and leads by example.”
Well, we certainly think he’s cover-model material. And so do voters—Aydian is beating the next highest contender almost two-to-one.
Dowling first came on our radar in February, when he posted a revealing re-creation of Adam Levine’s infamous Cosmo magazine cover.
“Giving back is a large part of my life. I started the first YouTube collaboration BeefHeads Fitness, a channel geared towards transgender individuals looking to get fit and healthy, says Dowling, who also owns the trans-friendly Point 5cc clothing and has already appeared on the cover of FTM magazine.
As a trainer, he’s worked with other trans men and “[feels] very proud to see their self confidence grow.”
Voting for Men’s Health’s Ultimate Guy Search runs through June 25, so be sure to go vote and keep Aydien in the top spot!
