Trans Bodybuilder Likely To Win “Men’s Health” Cover Spread Competition

Aydian Ethan Dowling is the current front-runner in Men’s Health Ultimate Guy Search competition, and if he wins, Dowling will become Men’s Health’s first trans cover model.



Men’s Health is looking for a “a guy who is fit and fearless, a doer who gives back and leads by example” to be their November 2015 cover model.


The Oregon trans activist, artist, entrepreneur and fitness pro currently has nearly three times the number of votes than his nearest competitor.

Dowling made national headlines in February, when he posted a revealing re-creation of Adam Levine’s infamous Cosmo magazine cover.


Check out the rest of the competition for Men’s Health’s Ultimate Guy Search, which runs through June 25, and vote for your favorite!
