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!

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
