There are so many things about the world we don't know, and if we do know them, we don't really understand them. For example, we had no idea an entire subculture had grown up around voguing — i.e., sorta dancing and contorting and flipping your limbs around in rough approximation of Madonna's antics in the video for her song "Vogue." Though the dance style ostensibly predates her, even Madge is strictly "old way" voguing; sorry, Miss Thing. Above, witness post-1990 "new way" vogue aficionados Aviance and Mecca competing in a New York vogue battle, which involves alarmingly thin queens in spandex (and goggles) demonstrating a physicality we can only describe as alien to the natural human experience.
