High Heel Race Returns to Dupont

by Jason Morenz

Drag queens in costume flocked to 17th Street, between P and S Streets NW Tuesday night to race in high heels.

A parade started at 6:30 p.m., followed by the race at 9 p.m.

This drag race is a Halloween season tradition in D.C. but was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

The event was hosted by Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Mayor’s Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning Affairs
