DC High Heel Drag Queen Race Description

DC High Heel Drag Queen Race - Drag Show | Running in Washington, DC.

An annual DC event since 1987, the DC High Heel Drag Queen Race has probably left a lot of unaware drag race-seekers mighty confused upon arriving at Dupont Circle.

Normally held on the Tuesday prior to Halloween, the DC High Heel Drag Queen Race attracts thousands of spectators to witness lots of costumed dudes – some of whom have legs many women only wish they had – sprint down 17th street, their high heels a-clacking and fake boobs a-bouncing.

Free-to-attend, The High Heel Drag Queen races usually don’t get going till 9pm, but many spectators arrive as early as 6pm for a good view of the fun, and an informal block party usually runs for several hours after the event.

Costumes at the DC High Heel Drag Queen Race change annually, but you can expect a whole lot of flurry, elaborate dresses, and a diverse crowd hooting and hollering as these lady-men prove high heels can be built for speed as much as style.

Well, maybe just style.
