Эйдиан Даулинг — первый трансгендер на обложке Men’s Health
Впервые в истории на обложке журнала Men’s Health появился мужчина-трансгендер. Однако лишь половина его тела и лишь в специальном коллекционном издании.
Ранее в этом году журнал заявил, что его ежегодный конкурс Ultimate Men’s Health Guy, победитель которого публикуется на обложке, будет открыт для «всех мужчин».
Эйдиан Даулинг, 27-летний трансгендер и энтузиаст фитнеса и здорового образа жизни, выиграл голосование среди читателей онлайн, получив 72 672 голоса. Однако издатели решили выбрать общего победителя, и им стал пожарный из Кентукки Тим Бонифейс, который и появился на стандартной обложке журнала.
На специальной обложке у Даулинга утешительный приз — слева видно половину его тела. Бонифейс и два других победителя включены целиком. «Цветной» победитель, учитель Омари Грей, отрезан с правой стороны. Сам трансгендер не считает, что их отрезали сознательно.
Внутри журнала есть целый разворот с Даулингом, есть там и его фотография с женой.

“Life is challenging. Find ways in which you can begin to give more of yourself, ways in which you can begin to help others. Help somebody and help yourself because what you give is what you get.” – Les Brown @lesbrownspeaks I have gotten so much love these last 24 hours it would be impossible for me to not feel humbled and grateful for the worlds support. Life gives you challenges and it is how you handle those challenges that make you who you are. There are no losers here- only winners. We all won for our communities and we all are more determined and empowered then every before! #lesbrown #transisbeautiful #wearemen #mhguycontest #brotherhood #ftm #lgbt #transpride #transgender #aydiandowling #lesbrown
You only have one life and everyday goes by faster then the last. I have this theory that everyday, since you were born, goes by quicker then the day before. When you are first born a day feels like a week. As you grow everyday feels a few minutes faster — until you are much older and you feel like ten years ago was yesterday. Don't waste a minute. Don't waste a day. Get up- Get out- And LIVE YOUR DREAM! #believeinyourdreams #believeinyourself #ifyoudontwhywouldothers #liveauthentic #liveyourdreams #putinwerk #ftm #aydiandowling #trans
One of the Youth from yesterday asked me about being Trans and dating. They were very scared no one would understand them, or more importantly love them. My wife @magickal_lens Jenilee has been with me since my 3rd shot of hormones and we have grown in our relationship as we both have grown into the humans we are today. It IS possible to find love and be loved. I hear stories all the time of Trans Love being spread between loving individuals. Don't settle for anything less then your own worth! #translove #soffa #aydiandowling #lgbt #trans #ftm #transyouth
This post from @zxchdaddy means a lot to me. The struggle growing up Trans and not having any support systems out there is why we have 41% of Trans Teens attempting suicide each year- NOT including those who were successful at doing so. Be a role model- Be a friend- Be a support system for those in need. Love can spread like butter in the heat so let's get to spreadin!! #TransIsBeautiful #aydiandowling #ftm #protecttranskids #youareworthit #community #lgbt #trans #mtf This is to address the image I was tagged in and reposted today "Protect Trans Kids" — I responded to a comment and I think this is my clearest statement to sum up the intent of the image- "I agree that nudity should not be geared towards children- I think this youth was more teenage then child. As a teenager who hated his body to the point of trying to break my arms, legs, cutting, wrapping my hips, covering myself in heavy black clothing, never enjoying myself bc of my body image- I think this youth saw me standing proud and found that inspirational." I can understand the points made about this image, and I respect those points enough to make a statement trying to clear up rather then defend this image. This teenager who posted it/made it has expressed how he found courage and positivity in this image and was hoping others would find it too.
Harvey Milk has been someone who has showed me a lot of courage this year. Today is the LAST DAY to cast your vote on the @menshealthmag Guy Contest, where we could land the FIRST EVER Transman on the cover!
