Check Out The Trans Man Making Waves As First Trans Andrew Christian Model

Jessie Diamond, a San Diego based life coach & personal trainer is first trans man included in iconic underwear manufacturer Andrew Christian's annual Proud campaign.


Meet Jesse Diamond, A San Diego-based personal trainer Who has just become the first trans man to be featured in an Andrew Christian underwear campaign.

Diamond appears in the iconic underwear giant’s annual Proud campaign. In an interview with Gay Star News, the 27-year-old says his new gig is “a dream come true.”

“When I started working out about five years ago, my dream was basically to become Marky Mark,” he says. “I wanted to be an underwear model, a buff guy, and I’ve been buying Andrew Christians for years. So it was definitely like a dream come true for me.”

He says the biggest challenges of his transition has been finding work as a personal trainer.

“Most of the other people I’ve worked with have been trans people. Cis males don’t seem to want to work with me because of my stature. I’m too small. And then women don’t want to work with me because I’m too muscular.”

To help provide additional income, Jesse began a side earner as a go-go dancer, however, he says he restricts himself to gay bars as he gets a better reaction from the crowd. However, his planned debut at a well-known gay strip club in LA did not go as planned last week.

“It was not really my thing because I’m not used to dancing around so many other dancers. I don’t wear a packer [a prosthetic penis], so being around 15 other guys with huge cocks … and they announced on the speakers that I was trans, and I felt a bit on display. I just felt a little self-conscious.

“Whereas with go-go dancing there are fewer dancers and they’re not making announcements about you. And because I’m so short, the cocks were almost eye-level on me, so it was like cock, cock, cock, no cock!” he laughs. For the time being, he’ll forsake stripping and stick to go-go gigs.


“We are so proud to have Jesse Diamond, our first FTM trans model, as one of our brand ambassadors”, designer Andrew Christian told Gay Star News.

“The political environment in the United States has become very dark and divisive toward the LGBTQ community so it is extremely important that we all stick together and support each other in every way possible especially being inclusive and celebrating the amazing diversity in our community.

“Andrew Christian was one of the first, out, loud and proud LGBTQ companies, we are so happy that we now have Jesse as part of our team. We also have several other shoots scheduled with trans models that we are very excited about.” Christian said
