Considering the Race

Every year on the Tuesday before Halloween, Washington DC's gay corridor, 17th Street, comes to life with the colorful parade of contestants for the High Heel Race. You could vie for a place to catch a glimpse of the likes of J. Lo or of the late royal highness Princess Diana escorted by her security agents. This event is sponsored by JR's and kicks off the Holiday festivities. Restaurants that line the few blocks are filled to the brim and if you are lucky they may even take reservations. The primo seats though, are the balconies of the apartments that flank the street, though you don't get the full experience of the crowd. My friends and I have been toying with the idea for years of joining the race as Philippine maidens dressed in traditional baro't saya or as Geishas complete with authentic kimonos and paper parasols. Sadly, nothing has come to fruition. Seeing these fabulous Louis Vuitton pumps made me think that perhaps this year would be the year that a Filipino will win the highly coveted trophy.
