Transgender Man Leads Contest To Appear On Cover Of Men's Health Magazine

Via USA Today:
A transgender man is leading in popular votes for the 2015 Men's Health cover contest. Aydian Dowling, a video blogger, activist and the creator of a clothing line called Point 5cc, has more than 46,000 votes as of Monday afternoon. If he wins the contest, which is open for entries until June 21, his photo will appear on the cover of the magazine's November issue. "I maintain a healthy lifestyle by making sure my life is in a balance," Dowling wrote on his contest entry post. "As a Transgender Male, having a healthy body and mind is my ultimate goal to find peace within my soul."
Reader votes count for only 10% of the final ranking, which includes a number of other criteria. Earlier this year a photo of Dowling recreating a famous pose by rocker Adam Levine was widely circulated on social media.  (Tipped by JMG reader Cricket)
