Transgender fitness model Aydian Dowling covers the latest issue of UK gay glossy Gay Times.

“I am SO happy to finally be able to announce this @gaytimesmag cover!” Dowling wrote in an Instagram post. “They asked me to be their first EVER Transgender cover and did and AWESEOME interview that I love!”

The cover features a shirtless Dowling next to the headline, “What A Man! The incredible journey of Aydian Dowling.”

Dowling, who came out lesbian as a teenager before identifying as transgender, has been documenting his 5-year transition on his YouTube channel. He also hosts a YoutTube fitness channel geared toward trans people.

He gained greater visibility last year competing to be 2015's Ultimate Men's Health Guy.
