Andreja Pejic makes history in the May 2015 issue of Vogue. The 23-year-old Serbian model is the first ever transgender model to ever be featured in the fashion bible.
Famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier snapped the beauty for the historic moment. Anna Wintour’s timing couldn’t be more perfect. Diane Sawyer’s highly-anticipated interview with Bruce Jenner airs this Friday. That woman must have a crystal ball in her office ;)
“If at the beginning of my career in the modelling industry or half way through it or even this time last year you told me that I would end up having a 4 page feature in AMERICAN VOGUE I would have probably told you ‘oh I dunno about that! That might be a bit difficult to achieve in the near future.’ In fact I was told by various people many times over that the chances of me ending up on these pages were slim to none. So you can only imagine what I’m feeling right now! Thank you #AnnaWintour,#TonneGoodman, #PatrickDemarchelier and#HelenaSuric for making history and having me be part of it but even more importantly for representing a whole social minority and an often forgotten community of women in such an important publication and opening doors for the rest of the fashion industry to do so!” Pejic wrote on Instagram
Up until 2014, Pejic was billed as an “androgynous” male model, self-described as living “in between genders.” She underwent a gender confirmation process last year to fully transition into a woman. For more, head over to Vogue.com to read her interview.
Marvel’s All-New X-Men follows young versions of Ice Man, Cyclops, Beast, Angel, and Jean Grey who are displaced in time. In the new issue #40, out on Wednesday, one of the original five team members comes out as gay.
Bobby Drake aka Ice Man opens up to Jean Gray about having feelings about one of his fellow male mutants. After initial denials, Iceman acknowledges what Jean had already confirmed from invading his mind.
The cute Shawn Ashmore played Ice Man in the X-Men feature films. Fingers crossed in an upcoming installment of the superhero franchise, Ashmore gets some man-on-man action. In the meantime, check out some leaked pages snagged by The Advocate below.
On May 22, Ireland heads to the pools for its national referendum on marriage equality. According to a poll held earlier this year, there is strong support for equal marriage. 76% of the people asked are in favor while 19% and 5% are opposed and undecided respectively.
Even though it appears the referendum which states, “Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex,” will pass, supporters of marriage equality are tirelessly working round the clock to get the word out.
The BeLonG To lead coalition is calling everyone eligible to vote to talk to their family and friends about why marriage equality is so important and to work for a Yes vote. Watch a touching ad below showing family and friends of the LGBT community demonstrating their support.
This clip first hit online a year ago but I just stumbled upon it this week. I thought I’d share it despite its age, assuming some of you haven’t seen it before like myself.
With the help of real doctors, Buzzfeed shares five things every man should know about their bodies. From why we get morning wood to if tight pants really do lower one’s sperm count and if a curved penis is common, all is answered. Watch the informative clip below.
The 23-year-old plays for the St Kilda Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). As part of his training program, he is also a swimmer and you can see him doing just that in his speedos in one of the videos I’ve included below.

Given that he’s on the cover of a fitness magazine, you’d think a photo showing off the 29-year-old actor’s body would’ve been featured. It’s a crime not to highlight what’s lurking underneath his shirt on display all day, every day.
Scott Eastwood graces the May 2015 issue of Men’s Fitness. He opens up about his workout routine to the publication which includes weights, jiu-jitsu, yoga, surfing, paddle boarding and diving. The combination of exercises is certainly paying off.

It voting closed today for the Men’s Health Ultimate Guy Search, the winner hands down would be Aydian Dowling. The Oregon trans activist leads the pack by a huge margin. Hopefully, Dowling can maintain the lead until June 21 when voting closes. I’d love to see the fitness trainer become the first transgender cover boy in the publication’s history on the November 2015 issue.
“I maintain a healthy lifestyle by making sure my life is in a balance. Just like you eat foods in a balance I do my absolute best to keep my mental mind in connection to my body so they can grow healthy together. The battle that can come with the mirror can be completely dark and engulfing. 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 everyday for a happy peace within. ” Aydian tells Men’s Health
Just in case you were wondering, Noah Galloway won last year’s contest. The insanely hot double amputee is currently competing on this season of Dancing With The Stars. It’s incredible how he’s progressing on the show. Truly amazing.
Dowling came into prominence when he recreated Adam Levine’s nearly naked Cosmopolitan cover. Remember the one where Levine showed it all off with only a woman’s hands covering his naughty bits. Check out more pics below.
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is one of the United State’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. The non-profit stages an eye-catching annual event featuring Broadway’s hottest performers, many of whom are naked to boot. The 2014 show raised a staggering $1,386,105.
The organization celebrates its silver anniversary this year and will do so in grand fashion. Broadway Bares: Top Bottoms of Burlesque will be a lavish and thrilling extravaganza that will combine the naughtiness of burlesque with the razzle-dazzle of Broadway. It promises to show a cast of colorful characters for every desire and fantasy.
“A lot of things can happen in 25 years, but who would’ve thought that seven guys dancing on a bar could grow into an annual event that has raised so much to help people living with HIV and AIDS. Broadway Bares has done that,” says Tony winning choreographer/producer Jerry Mitchell, who created the event a quarter-century ago. “This year we’re going full out, maybe even with a top hat and our version of tails, ’cause if, baby, you’re a bottom, you’re the tops.”
The 2015 edition will fill NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Sunday, June 21. Watch the sexy promo below featuring plenty of naked behinds.
