I Walked The Runway As A Plus-Size Woman For The First Time

"I'm trying not to freak out right now."

I'm Jazzmyne. Up until this year's New York Fashion Week, I had never modeled in my life. But there's a first time for everything, right?

When we arrived in New York, we headed to the Brooklyn Museum, where I'd be walking in the show. They were already setting up and everything looked so glamorous—it was a little intimidating.

Next was makeup. I usually prefer to do my makeup myself, but this artist was so good and made me feel pretty damn confident. No filter needed, y'all.

Finally, it was ~showtime.~ When it was my turn, I remember walking up to the runway, glancing down...and then I kind of just blacked out. But I didn't trip or fall, which is pretty great in my book!

After the show was over, I felt not only relieved to be done, but proud to have walked with so many amazing members of the LGBT community. The entire group was so fun and inspiring and truly worked it on stage.
