Check out your newsstand on Friday, the 8th for the print edition – it’s the date ESPN’s famous and highly anticipated “Body Issue” goes on sale, its annual issue that celebrates the naked bodies of athletes across a wide variety of sports. And this year it features two members of the LGBT community – triathlete and cyclist, trans man Chris Mosier and diver, Greg Louganis.

The issue features athletes of all sizes and shapes from a variety of sports in nude photo shoots that tastefully emphasize their differing bodies in motion that have been forged by their personal sport. But what makes this issue especially important is that it’s the first year a transgender athlete has been selected. Mosier is the first trans athlete to compete on a national all-male team. And at 57, Louganis is the oldest athlete to be featured, showing that his diving form, like his body is still very much in shape.

But if you’d rather just look online, you can go to the following ESPN link:
