289--Florida: Drag Races in Key West 2005
@ CherieSpotting     Apr 26 2005 - 16:47 PST
cherie writes: Life in Key West is never a drag. And Drag Racing isn’t what you think. In honor of the Conch Republic’s Independence Day, Key West’s favorite Queens put on their sassy-pants and raced each other to raise money for Helpline. Thousands of spectators lined the streets to cheer the girls on in the 7th Annual Conch Republic Drag Race. Key West is the only place you can watch a man sprinting down the street in feathers and sequins for a good cause.

In all fairness, racers were handicapped according to the height of their heels (with a minimum requirement of 3-inches.) One gal was disqualified because she snuck on the course with sneakers. Other Queens crossed the finish line in their own shopping-carts…but it didn’t matter. Since the money raised went to charity, the judges were willing (and eager) to be bribed.

After the Drag Race and Drag Olympics, the girls got their make-up messy with Foam Wrestling. Nothing like a stage full of bubbles to bring girls together! Here are the photos.
