Sexy Swimsuit Issue of ’Transformation Magazine’ Now Available

LOS ANGELES—Transformation Magazine’s summer issue (#102) is now available for purchase at

Trans performer Sunshyne Monroe is the issue’s cover model.

“Issue #102 celebrates Transformation’s popular annual sexy swimsuit feature,” said Editor Kristel Penn. “It was a tradition we wanted to continue and thought it would be fun to give an extra incentive by turning it into a contest. We received submissions from people from around the world, from both performers and non-performers. Beauty comes in many forms and we wanted to showcase that here. Likewise, we thought Sunshyne Monroe, affectionately nicknamed ‘the Body,’ would be perfect as our cover model.”

Transformation hosted an open competition and encouraged people to submit their best swimsuit photos for a chance to be featured in the magazine and cash prizes donated by Grooby. With nearly a hundred entrants, the editorial staff selected a handful of submissions for the coveted photospread feature and awarded Tatiana Summers as the grand prize $500 winner, with runner-ups Shiri and Sasha de Sade taking home $200 each.

“It’s hard to believe that the swimsuit theme issue we developed spur of the moment has already reached its fifth year and is still going strong, continuing to be our most popular issue of the year,” stated publisher Hanna Rodgers. “I wanted to give tgirls an opportunity to show off their beautiful bodies, to celebrate all shapes and sizes and levels of transition in order to inspire everyone in the community to be proud of who they are. I’m extremely pleased that Kristel has kept the tradition alive and has made so many improvements to Transformation overall; the magazine just keeps getting better and better with every issue, and our fans are loving all the changes.”

Penn continued, “My goal for Transformation is to retain its unique intersectionality. It’s a lifestyle magazine for experience-rich lives - we don’t shy away from nudity, sex and sexuality, kink play, and other topics that are relevant to the LGBTQ community. We aim to be a resource with a wider reach than just adult content.”

Transformation #102 is the celebrated Sexy Swimsuit Issue with TEA nominee Sunshyne Monroe gracing its cover and includes their 5th annual Sexy Swimsuit Spread, Reader’s Letters, centerfold Jenna Tales, an exclusive interview with kink photographer and educator Lord Morpheous, Bad Dragon toy review with Natalie Mars, advice columns from Aunt Randi and a licensed therapist, and much more.
