Why This Transgender Athlete is Ready to Go Nude for ESPN’s Body Issue

Chris Mosier is about to be the first Trans athlete to appear completely nude in ESPN magazine’s coveted “Body Issue” — past issues have featured famed athletes such as Serena Williams, Rhonda Rousey, Blake Griffin, Manny Pacquiao and more.

But for Chris, a duathlete, this is more than just a chance at some publicity.

In a statement, he explained,

“I have had such an interesting relationship with my body and it has really evolved over time so I felt this was a real challenge for me and a great way to celebrate where I am at right now. It felt amazing, given that for 29 years of my life I didn’t even like being in pictures.”

This is so awesome! We are so proud of Chris and are so excited to see him show off his hot bod in the issue. Chris will appear along with Dwayne Wade in the upcoming issue.
