Germany: A transgender man will appear as the cover model for the April issue of Germany’s Men’s Health magazine. “My inside and my outside finally fit, and that’s why I’m not at all ashamed to finally talk about it.”

Fitness model Ben Melzer opens up about his transition in the upcoming issue, and says he would like his time in the spotlight to give hope to those who may be in similar situations.

When I was in that situation, I had nobody to talk to,” Melzer said. “I want to give the community a face, stand up and answer those questions for people.”

Last year we were following the story of Aydian Ethan Dowling, the trans man who was a top contender for the cover of the U.S. version of Men’s Health.

Dowling ultimately didn’t win the contest, but was proud of the visibility it provided to the trans community.

We joined together and showed that we have a voice that is loud and proud,” said Dowling. “Let’s continue this fight and together we will all be embraced for our journey to authenticity.”
