A transgender man could end up a cover model for Men's Health after thousands of votes have poured in for the magazine's cover contest.



Aydian Ethan Dowling of Eugene, Oregon, is blowing out the competition for Men's Health’s "Ultimate Guy Search" with more than 34,000 votes. It's more than 25,000 votes than the contestant in second place.


The nationwide contest aims to find a man who "possesses all of the qualities that make up today's well rounded, active, health conscious and thoughtful guy."


Judges are "looking for a guy who is fit and fearless; a doer who gives back and leads by example," according to the contest site.


Dowling, a transgender man and activist, has documented his story on his YouTube page and Facebook in an effort to help other transgender people grapple with their body or transition.


"The battle that can come with the mirror can be completely dark and engulfing," Dowling wrote on his contestant page. "As a Transgender Male, having a healthy body and mind is my ultimate goal to find peace within my soul. Although I may always have some kind of battle with my body, I continue to work every day for a happy peace within."
