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.

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