Today is all about self care- First I am hitting the gym to get my endorphins going. Then I'll be working in my studio for my pride and joy aka @point5cc lol Followed by a movie date with myself It is so important to make sure we are treating ourselves just as well as we are treating those we love. I'll be talking about why Self Care is so important to me in my next video What are YOU doing today to show your self love?! #Ftm #selfcareisnotselfish #selfcare #lgbt #mtf #gnc #youtube #aydiandowling #transguy #translife #transcare #alionsfears #thisiswhattranslookslike #transisbeautiful #transfitness #topsurgery #righteous
Aydian is helping to increase visiblity for trans men, documenting his experience on YouTube as well as posting fitness videos.
In his interview with GT, Aydian says, "When you’re forced to bind your body every day, not only is it damaging to the human body, but it does something so hurtful to the mind. The feeling of having to hide, or cover up yourself, can be very traumatising to one’s feeling of self worth."
