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.
