“Trans bodies are human bodies. We are everyone you wouldn’t ‘think’ we are. There is a misconception of what transgender is supposed to look like. We are all sizes, shapes, colors, and sexual identities. We are in every country, state, city, everywhere. We deserve visibility, human rights, and support.” -Aydian Dowling
Dowling is an active member of the transgender community. He travels as a speaker and has a video blog on YouTube where he documents his five years of transition. He is also the owner of Point 5cc, a clothing company that makes “stealth-style” fashions for transgender men. His company started the first national binder exchange program, and a fund to help trans men who want top surgery but can’t afford it. Dowling is one of the models in the above photograph (the other model is Adam Levine) taken for FTM Magazine.
