Transgender fitness model Ben Melzer will be featured on the cover of the April issue of the German edition of Men's Health.

According to various media reports, Melzer's turn on the glossy's cover will make him the first transgender man to appear on the cover of a men's fitness magazine in Europe.

Melzer entered and won a cover model contest held by the German magazine.

In an interview with Now This, Melzer said that he wanted to become a spokesman for the transgender community.

“When I was in that situation [of struggling with my gender identity], I had nobody to talk to, nobody to ask all these questions,” he said. “That's what I want to do. I want to give the community a face, stand up and answer those questions for people.”

Last year, the U.S. edition of Men's Health included its first transgender man in a special collector's edition issue. Aydian Dowling was in the running to win the 2015 Ultimate Guy Cover Contest. He lost the cover to Tim Boniface, but readers picked Dowling as their favorite.
