WATCH: TRANS FITNESS MODEL BEN MELZER MAKES THE COVER OF “MEN’S HEALTH”


Trans Fitness Model Ben Melzer Makes Cover Men's Health

Transgender fitness model Ben Melzer is about to grace the cover of the April issue of Germany’s edition of Men’s Health magazine.

27-year-old Ben, who was born Yvonne, began his transition at age 23.

“I was never a typical girl. I started thinking pink was a no-go,” Melzer told German publication Bild.de in a video posted to Facebook.

“This is me and I’m very happy with the person I became. My inside and outside finally fit.”

Ben got the cover after winning a Men’s Health’s competition and said he now hopes to give the transgender community a face.

“When I was in that situation, I had nobody to talk to, nobody to ask all these questions,” he said.

“I want to stand up and answer these questions for people.”
