What does FTM stand for?

FTM is an acronym for Female to Male, as in a trans person who has crossed from typically feminine to typically masculine gender expression. We also use the acronym to stand for – For Trans Men, to more widely encompass our potential audience.

Is this magazine PG?

FTM Magazine in its print version is suitable for all ages. We’re often found in healthcare and business offices and can never be sure who will pick us up so we tend to stay acceptable for a general audience.

We do recommend that for younger readers, parents take a look through the issues to ensure that the content is suitable by your standards.

On the website, there is a Tab and Tag for NSFW (Not safe for work) material, so we can still have conversations around sex and sexuality.

Is this magazine for me?

There are many magazines and publications for the trans community at large, for genderqueer or nuetral folks, as well as generally masculine (dictated by culture) magazines. We recommend looking into all of the options and finding a publication that best suits you. Not all forms of media are designed to by everything for everyone.

FTM is, most basically put, a magazine for men who happened to be born and assumed female at birth. Whether that means using hormones or surgeries to align their bodies, or simple transitioning socially.

We hope you can get support from our topics, writers, and content. If you feel you fit in our audience and aren’t seeing something you’d like to, please consider writing in about this topic to help fill the gaps in experiences.

Is this Magazine available in Print?

FTM Magazine has officially made the move to the digital era, and is currently only available in PDF form. Perhaps in the future we will continue to print, but at this time the evolution of publications has lead us here.
