First time I ever heard of vitiligo was from Micheal Jackson.
WITH his rippling muscles and classic good looks, this aspiring male model should have no problem finding a date. But shy Darius Vernon has spent the past fourteen years avoiding the opposite sex after a chronic skin condition left his self-esteem in tatters. Darius, from Willesden, North London, suffers from vitiligo – a condition that causes the skin to lose its pigmentation creating white patches on the body. Darius spent years trying to hide his condition, but after being noticed by modelling scouts on Instagram, the 30-year-old is hoping to show that diversity is beautiful.
