Deep in the heart of gay America, there is an annual tradition that makes Thanksgiving look like a surprise trip to an untrained dentist. It’s called The High Heel Race, it involves some of the city’s best male athletes sprinting down the street (some/most of them in fabulous costumes), and it is a deeply sentimental occasion of remembrance for those who bravely gave their lives in the effort to make mens-size high heels acceptable footwear year on out. This year, hurricanes and all-the event was postponed from Tuesday from Thursday but we are pleased to announce that this did not affect the attendance, one bit. In fact, if anything-the heeled troopers came out with extra ammo and panache this year. (also, it helps it didn’t rain-for the first time since we remember)

It is also one our FAVORITE occasions to photograph in DC every year.  So, without further a do:
