Transsexual may be ‘ultimate guy’
Aydian Dowling transformed from female to male to potential cover star
At the risk of totally objectifying this cool person, it has to be said that he looks as cute as a man as he did as a woman. Working on his physical appearance was a big part of how Aydian Dowling came to terms with being born female, but identifying as male. Dowling is in the running to be on the cover of Men’s Health magazine, as part of the Ultimate Guy Search online poll, where he has received almost 40,000 votes so far. The contest is looking for someone who is fit and fearless and that’s a pretty accurate description of Dowling, who transitioned to male by receiving testosterone shots and having his breasts removed in 2009. Since then, he has taken to body-building to get more comfortable with his masculinity. He runs two YouTube channels for trans people, Beefheads Fitness and A Lions Fears, has founded a clothing company and is a big deal on Instagram.
