The picture above of Jaimie Wilson has been making the rounds on the queer blogosphere this week, and it’s easy to see why. Wilson shared the now-viral pic of himself before and after his transition, and he’s pretty damned sexy as both genders. In fact, we haven’t been this turned on since we saw trans man Aydian Dowling vying for the cover of Men’s Health.
Wilson is an aspiring musician and DJ who recently released a country-style love song on YouTube, but he’s also got a slam-poetic streak too. Even more interestingly, he’s a cam model who shares some details about his personal life, work and activism on Instagram.
He started his Instagram account on June 12, 2015 as a way to document his transition and life progress. He has since shared some personal details, like the fact that his family disowned him after he came out as trans and that he also works as a DJ and a cam-model.
On one of his pics, he wrote:
“At first I was scared to come out as transgender because I didn’t give any ‘signs’ as people say. I looked and presented very feminine…not because I wanted to but because I felt pressured to make the people around me happy. When I first came out people tried telling me ‘this is not who you are’ that’s when I realized you are NOT who people think you are…you are who you know you are.
He adds, “It doesn’t matter what some looks like… if someone has the guts to tell you ‘I’m transgender,’ ‘I’m gay,’ ‘I’m bisexual,’ anything like that, please believe them and be there for them because stereotypes need to be broken.”
I get told I look too serious in all of my pics so here's a goofy mirror selfie featuring major hat hair ?? #trans #transmen #transman #transgender #transisbeautiful #blueeyes #headshot #ftm #femaletomale #malemodel #lgbt #lovewins #loveislove #nohate #dream #instadaily #progress #lgbtq #queer #instagood #bodypositive #gay #selfmademan #instaselfie #instahub #instagay #selflove #goals #loveyourself #pride
Along with his shirtless pics, he has made posts speaking out about transgender suicide and encouraging trans students to contact him if their schools refuse to accommodate their gender identity. With Trump’s new anti-trans executive order, we imagine a few trans students might have contacted Wilson recently.
Wilson now has over 113,000 Instagram followers, which is pretty impressive considering that he only has 266 posts so far. He adds a zillion hashtags to all of his posts though, which surely helps raise his visibility along with his many sexy shirtless pics.
