DC High Heels: a break after a week of terrible national news
I went to the early portion of the High Heels Race on 17th Street in Washington DC Oct. 30. The event was a break from all the demonstrations and dire political news and tragedies.
The parade started around 7:10 PM and was longer than I expected.
There were several marching bands. This was a “mini pride”.
It was mild, around 60 degrees F.
I don’t think these Halloween costumes were particularly about fluidity this time. But this year's is especially important for the trans community given all the political controversies from Trump.
