We’ve been covering the annual 17th Street High Heel Race for the past nine ears, and we can honestly say that it is one of the most fabulous events in the city each year. For 30 years, gay men have been donning wigs, outlandish costumes, and their highest heels to race down 17th Street, NW from R Street to Church Street. What began as a promotion between two bars has grown into an event that draws thousands. May it keep growing.

We could go on, but its the photos which really tell the story. And if you want even more high heels, check out our past coverage from 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, and 2007.

This year’s first set is by David Claypool / Kalorama Photography.
