See the snaps HERE!

Chris Mosier is making history… again!

Last year, the sports star became the first transgender individual to earn a spot on the US National Team of the gender he identifies with, rather than the one he was given at birth.

And now, the 35-year-old is the first out transgender athlete to be featured in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue!

The duathlete — who competes in events that feature both running and biking legs — posed completely nude for the spread, bravely baring his body in these shots (above)!

In a sneak peek of the upcoming issue, the inspirational athlete told ESPN that he had wanted to be in this specific issue for over a year, explaining that he finally feels comfortable with his body:

"I think the reason I felt so inspired to do it is that I'm finally at a place where I feel very comfortable with my body. And as a trans person, being in a body that didn't really fit me for 29 years, now I feel very comfortable in my own skin."

Chris even admitted that before he transitioned, he viewed fitness as a way to be more connected to his body, and would put on muscle in certain places to feel more masculine.

He says that's why being featured in this spread is such a moving moment for him:

You can't teach an old dog new tricks…

But now that she's been happily living her life as a woman for over a year now, you'd expect that living under the patriarchy would make her a more socially responsible celeb, right??

WRONG!!!

Filed under: Celeb KidzReality TVTransgenderCaitlyn JennerLGBT

EJ Johnson is getting honest about his gender identity.

In a new episode of the Rich Kids of Beverly Hills alum's spinoff show, EJNYC, Magic Johnson's son opens up to a therapist about how Caitlyn Jenner's high-profile transition made him explore his own gender identity.

The 24-year-old said in a clip from the episode:

"I just wanted to come in today because I think there's just a lot going on with gender right now in the world and I think so many things are changing. Sometimes it's hard being in the middle, kind of in the gray area in my own lane. Now, since everybody's talking about Caitlyn Jenner and being transgender, people are so quick to say, 'Oh just because you're dressing like that means that you're going to transition to become a woman.'"

In fact, the reality star even admitted that the former Olympian's experience caused him to consider transitioning himself, adding:

"I thought about it, for sure. I was just like, 'Well do I want to transition? Is this something that I would do?' But I don't feel incomplete in that way. I don't feel the need to do that."

Ch-ch-check out the emotional moment (above)!

In another clip, EJ also addressed an article that compared his fashion to Kim Kardashian West's, dishing:

no title

Such a fitting tribute…

He said:

"Hi everyone. This is Joe Biden and I wish I could be there with you in person to honor some truly inspiring trailblazers. Each of you gives meaning to Harvey Milk's words, 'Hope never remains silent.' And we need you. We need all of you. Because as we celebrate a year of equality in marriage, draconian state laws deny transgender Americans basic civil rights. And in nearly 70 countries, it's a crime. It's a crime to be who you are. And because the freedom to live freely means being free from bullying, free from harassment, and free from violence. You know, our hearts are still heavy for Orlando, but you're showing tonight that we are Orlando. We're all Americans. Unbowed. Unrelenting. We endure. We overcome. We're hopeful and we will not be silent."'

The event will also spotlight LGBT pioneers Billie Jean King, Harvey Fierstein, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sylvia Rivera. Stage presenters include Emma Stone, Macklemore, Lance Bass, Chloe Grace Moretz, Janet Mock, Wilson Cruz and Candis Cayne.

It airs at 8pm ET/PT.

To hear Biden's beautiful video message, ch-ch-check it out (below).
