Transgender Aydian Dowling on the Gay Times cover

By  |  0 Comments

Who is Aydian Dowling? Dowling is a 27-year-old trans body builder, activist and vlogger from New York.

He was at the centre of a campaign backed by thousands to get him on the cover of Men’s Health magazine as part of a competition in 2015. He didn’t quite win, and was instead included along with other men on the a special edition cover, so Gay Times decided to give him the cover he missed out on.

Editor Darren Scott believes Dowling is the first ever trans man to be featured on the cover of a gay magazine internationally.

Mr Scott told The Independent: “Aydian’s story has interested me ever since I saw he was in the running to be a cover star for Men’s Health – everyone was talking about him. So I’m delighted, and honoured, that he agreed to tell his story to GT, and that he’s the first trans man on the cover of not only our magazine, but that he’s the first trans man on the cover of an international gay magazine. It’s not just the fact that Aydian looks fantastic – I wish I had his drive to work out – but that his story is so interesting, and so beautifully told. It’s a touching story and I’m so glad we’re able to help get his message out there properly.”
