An American Girl in Washington

Drag Race!

Posted in Just another day in DC by AGinDC on 26 October 2010

I love my neighborhood and tonight was just another reason why.  Dupont Circle is famous for a high heeled drag race that takes place every year and tonight was the night! After a meeting of the Smithsonian Young Benefactors Community Service Committee (of which I am now a member :-)) I met up with Rev.Dave and we headed over to 17th & P, the site of the finish line.  For the hour before the race the Queens paraded up and down the street in absolutely fabulous outfits.  Most of the girls really went all out and a lot of them were born performers.  Even with the drunken cliche straight guys and the middle-aged housewife and her daughter visiting from Tennessee annoying the hell out of us, Rev.Dave and I had a great time and we got tons of pics!  Next year, our goal is to work for the race so that we too can earn t-shirts that say “High Heeled Drag Race Volunteer”.  A girl can dream.  😉

Vegas anyone?

Apparently the rest of her uniform got lost in the jungle.

It's DC, there just had to be a patriotic drag queen


Why it's Chanel, dahling

Maria Von Clapp (I didn't make that up)

Some folks got political.

Christine O'Donnell was a popular choice, for obvious reasons.

This guy was just amazing.

Princess Lolly from Candyland.


Oh! And the shoes!

After all of the draggy excitement, Rev.Dave and I went to the Front Page for a drink and discovered it was trivia night.  We weren’t interested.  A quick beer and we headed to our respective homes.  What a fabulous Tuesday.

Great job ladies!
