Walking down the catwalk must be pretty boring for models who have to do it all the time. You walk one direction, you walk the other, you change clothes, and you repeat ad infinitum. At the Friday, September 7, "Disney Villains x The Blonds" show at New York Fashion Week, however, dancer Leiomy Maldonado changed the game with one of the fiercest "walks" the modeling world has ever seen.




What began as a fairly simple strut quickly turned into a dip that shocked and excited the crowd. On the way back up the runway, Maldonado continued to dance, twirling her hair as the audience showered her with applause.

The show also featured Paris Hilton and beauty YouTuber Patrick Starrr appearing as very stylish Disney Villains!


You may recognize Maldonado from Nike's #BeTrue campaign, in which she became the second transgender model to star in the brand's ads. (The first was Chris Mosier, also the first transgender athlete to make a US National team.)


You may have also seen Maldonado as Florida Ferocity on Pose, Ryan Murphy's new show, which is notable for featuring the largest number of trans actors of any show on television.




Twitter showered Maldonado with kudos for her amazing catwalk performance!








Amazing work, Leiomy. May the vogueing never end!

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
