Watch: The Journey of Aryan Pasha- India’s First Transman Bodybuilder

Aryan Pasha is a trans man from Delhi who created history when he grabbed the 2nd position in bodybuilding competition Musclemania India in Men’s Physique (Short) category. Gaylaxy tracked Aryan over the months while he was preparing himself for the competition and was present with him on the D -day.

We talked to Aryan a month before the competition, and he shared with us not just why he was so keen to participate, but also the challenges he has to face as a trans man while building his boy. We joined Aryan on 1st December at NCUI Auditorium in Delhi. He was confident before the competition, and ecstatic upon winning it.

Watch his journey below:
