Balian Buschbaum – Before
Like Caitlyn Jenner, Balian Buschbaum was a famous international athlete before making a transition. This time, though, the transition went the other way. Born Yvonne Buschbaum, in southern Germany, Balian had a long and brilliant beginning as a pole-vaulter, even making it to the Olympic Games and winning the European Junior Championships at the young age of 19. A persistent injury ended his career in 2007, though. At the same time, Balian realized what was troubling him was more than just an injury. He had gone through life as a female, but it was time to become the person he really was inside. Naming himself Balian, after the main character in Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven, he underwent surgery in 2008. His stunning transformation will leave you absolutely speechless.
Balian Buschbaum – After
As a female, Balian Buschbaum was spunky, ripped, and pretty damned cute. As a male, Balian has become a pin-up of the transgender world, and even the male world in general. Basically, if you passed him in the street you’d have no idea of what he once was. This guy is one rugged hunk – and he hasn’t lost those muscles, either.Since the surgery, Balian’s been content just to use his looks to join the world of A-list celebrities. Adored in his home town and country, rarely a day goes by that he’s not snapped with some honey on his arm, attending some gala or another. Like Chaz Bono, Buschbaum’s also appeared on the German version of Dancing With The Stars, called Let’s Dance. This guy is absolutely unstoppable if you ask us.
