Sidewalk Style: Drag Race Day

At last month’s 17th Street Festival, we saw three tall-legged drag queens—check them out to get ready for tonight’s legendary High Heel Race in Dupont Circle

Who (from left): Ba’Naka, Jessica Spaulding, and Shi-Queeta-Lee.

Where: At the inaugural 17th Street Festival.

So who are you ladies representing?
Shi-Queeta-Lee: “We’re from the Town Danceboutique, which is a gay club in DC. We do performances there, and we were on America’s Got Talent last year. We also work at Cobalt, another gay club.”

Are you channeling anyone in particular?
Shi-Queeta-Lee: “I’m supposed to be portraying Tina Turner doing ‘Proud Mary.’ ”
Jessica Spaulding: “I’m just being a strumpet!”
Ba’Naka: “And I’m in the illusion of Lady Gaga.”
