I’ve read about Aydian Dowling before, but I wonder if Aydian, is actually eligible to participate in this contest. I say this because the requirements state the to be eligible you must be “male”. I guess it depends upon how Men’s Health defines “male”. I also wonder if everyone is getting ahead of themselves, there actually are no semi-finalists yet, according to the rules that will be determined on or about June 26th. I have no real feeling about Aydian, I did read his story on the men’s health website, he is not the only trans entrant, so I’m not sure why the other entrant isn’t getting as much LBGT press. I felt like other entrants were more deserving of the honor, based upon what Men’s Health is looking for.
