Photos: High Heel Drag Race

Every October, the best-dressed drag queens DC has to offer come out to 17th Street to compete in a high heel race. And last night, we were out in the rain to document the best and the brightest of the costumes and the crowd. There was everything from a Marilyn Monroe to a Washington Monument costume—even Mayor Fenty came to see the fun. Check out our photos of the creatively-attired queens here.
