DC’s annual Halloween drag high heel race

VIDEO: It’s a tradition that’s been going on in Washington, DC since I first came out. The Drag High Heel Race. You gotta be in drag, and I think you have to be wearing at least 3 inch high heels. Then you run down a 2 block stretch of 17th street, the ancestral home of DC’s gay community (and there’s a pretty good prize, as I recall). It was always a hoot, and now has turned into a HUGE affair, attracting thousands of people every Halloween – and a ton of straight people too, with kids in tow. It’s a total hoot. Enjoy this video of this year’s race, from MW.
