In case you missed it…
A powerful photo of Point 5cc’s own Aydian Dowling went viral last week
Don’t miss a cover story and feature with Point 5cc’s founder and president, Aydian Dowling, for the April issue of FTM Magazine. The interview itself is chock full of insights to Point 5cc, like our Surgery Fund and binder exchange program, as well as personal insights from Aydian himself.
As part of the feature, FTM Magazine staff also photographed Aydian and his wife, Jenilee, mimicking the iconic picture of musician Adam Levine. (Adam made headlines when he posed nude back in 2011 to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer.) FTM Magazine’s publisher, Jason Robert Ballard, saw similarities in model Aydian Dowling’s physique and Levine’s, so he set about making a recreation of the image as a powerful message paralleling transgender bodies to cis counterparts.
“Some areas of my body used to remind me of everything I’m not. Now they represent everything I am,” Aydian said of the photo.
