Remember when Adam Levine stripped down to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer — or to raise awareness of his own hotness? Pretty sure it was one of those. Now, FTM Magazine, the all-in-one source for female to male culture, has recreated the shoot with sexy trans activist Aydian Dowling for the upcoming April issue.ftm-april-2015

“Some areas of my body used to remind me of everything I’m not,” said Dowling, founder of Point 5cc clothing. “Now they represent everything I am.”

Dowling originally started Point 5cc— a stealth clothing company highlighting transgender commonalities and creating a sense of pride — to fund his top surgery, but decided to keep it around to “give back to the community that had given so generously to him.”

In addition to a free binder exchange program, Point 5cc hosts an annual Transgender Surgery Fund.

You can find more on Aydian in the April 2015 issue of FTM (right).
