Election Season Drags to a Close at DC High Heel Run

 

The 32nd annual 17th Street High Heel Run took place Tuesday as a celebration of D.C.'s LGBTQ community. Drag queen participants were not only focused on the night’s stiletto sprint, but also on next week’s midterm elections — donning costumes ranging from Rep. Barbara Comstock to Melania Trump with a baby Donald Trump. The race was started in 1986 and has grown over the years. Mayor Muriel Bowser was the grand marshall.
