A trans man could be on the cover of Men's Health Magazine

Men's Health magazine might put an openly transgender man on the cover for the very first time.

The health-focused magazine is holding its annual Ultimate Guy contest where fans vote on the individual that they think possesses all of the qualities that make up today's well rounded, active, health conscious and thoughtful guy.

While the winner for the November issue is ultimately determined by the judges, transgender model Aydian Dowling is currently in the lead with more than four times the amount of votes as the second place-holder.

Dowling said: "Being the first Trans Men's Health cover model would mean so much to not only me but the entire transgender community. Personally, it would affirm that my initial intentions for myself five years ago, when I decided to transition, are really coming to life. I wanted to become my version of what I feel is a good man".

  3. Kelly Clark Saying, With this expanded visibility and mindfulness has additionally come the separating of obstructions by transgender individuals. Transgender individuals have been showing up everywhere throughout the media, in motion pictures, network shows and magazine covers. A few, for example, Caitlyn Jenner, have even changed freely. On account of the valiance of those people who have put themselves forward to general society, numerous entryways have opened for other people, who wish to do likewise.
