The Self Made Men on Tumblr

Please visit our website for more information:

The Self Made Men is a tool used to serve the transgender male community. On one end, we educate and promote awareness of our existence, needs and normalcy to individuals and groups in both the GLBT and Allied communities. Mirrored to this cause, our biggest concerns lie with the support and mentoring of other transgender people as a resource to transitioning and dealing with everyday life.

We are proud to announce that we will be running the second annual Self Made Men calendar! Last year was so successful and reached so many people that we are able to do it again! 

We are looking for 12 female-to-male transgender models.
The specifications are listed below, and while we would love to be completely accommodating and allow each person multiple attempts to submit, we are going to be going through hundreds of submission and need you to have everything sent in in completion. We won’t have time to chase down every candidate for a missing bio or photo. 

This is how 2013 is looking! 

  • One large photo
  • Two small photos (before and after)
  • 100-150 word bio
These are the more advanced specifications
- The Large Photo
  • High resolution
  • Formal/Semi formal/Fancy wear or solid black or white Tshirt
  • As solid background as possible
- Two Small Images
  • Before Image
  • After Image
  • Highest Resolution Possible
  • note: before and after is relevant to you and your transition, we’re just looking for how much you’ve changed.
- 100-150 Word Bio
  • Tell us about your transition
  • Spell check
Submissions begin Sept 1st… Model selection begins Sept 14th. This gives you the next two weeks to get your photos together and two weeks to submit your package. Sept 14th is not necessarily the deadline, but you’re taking the risk it may be too late. We will first be going through and removing entries that are missing information or the photos are unusable due to resolution or layout (we won’t edit someone out of your picture, we just want you). Of those left, the staff will be reading through bios, assessing photos graphic layout potential and narrowing down the 12 guys we’ll be using.  

 Again, Sept 1st for submissions!
