Ready, set, drag

In anticipation of Queen City Drag Race, where drag-decked participants in stilletos run or squirm to a finish line, all I can think is, "Please, please let them wear knee pads!" Hopefully, those participating in the event have mastered the task of moving in challenging footwear.

Heels and a wig are the only attire requirements, so protective gear isn't out of the question. Whew. Q.C. drag diva Buff Faye hosts the race. Half the proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and winners of the race determine a charity of choice for the remaining funds. At least any scars will be for a good cause.
