Attitude magazine released the new incredibly thirst-inducing covers of their June issue—one featuring American trans model Laith Ashley and the other British canoeist Matt Lister. Laith first grabbed my attention when discovering his amazing Instagram account a while back—and it’s pretty amazing to see his modeling career take off.

The feature seems interesting as well, as Laith posted the cover on his Instagram account with the caption “Thank you so much @attitudemag and @leonardocorredor for this incredible feature. Really has me on the verge of tears. #slay #attitude #gratitude”
Laith tells Attitude of his past:
I would self-destruct, I would disappear because I didn’t want to be here. For a long time I prayed to God to let me die,” he said. “I’d think I hate life, hate being trans, hate the world. I was very negative. I still struggle with that from time to time but remind myself I’m pretty blessed. I have a family who [is] supportive. They may not agree with who I am, but they do love me. I had the privilege of going to school. I have the privilege of this experience. I love who I see in the mirror now.
We’re so happy for him! Continue to slay (and look sexy AF doing it), Laith!
