It wouldn’t be Capital Pride Week without the Third Annual Stonewall Kickball DragBall. That’s right, it’s time for a matchup between “Stonewall kickball players in drag and DCs loveliest Queens in kickball uniforms.”

The game takes place this Sunday, June 2, from 3 to 6 pm at Stead Park (1625 P Street NW). Come cheer on your favorite team and players as they run the bases as fast as they can in their heels.

If that bit of entertainment isn’t enough to bring you out, know that the games are being staged to support and raise money for the DC Center and Capital Pride. Organizers are asking for $5 donations, which include entry, a raffle ticket, and access to the after party at Cobalt.

With a crowd of 500-plus people cheering the action, Stonewall Kickball held its second annual Drag Kickball festivities on Sunday at Stead Park Field on P Street NW. The winner was the Cobalt Division, beating the division from JR’s Bar & Grill by a score of 4-0. The event benefited The DC Center for the LGBT community and Capital Pride.

Sadly, the tug-of-war between competing teams of Stonewall Kickers was not part of this year’s festivities as it was in 2011.

The event was presented by JR’s and Cobalt. Sponsors of Sunday’s event included Bar Number Nine, Pizza No. 17, Town Dance Boutique, VIDA Fitness, Washington Hilton, Jimmy Kickit, Looks by Dorothy, Bukkicke, 21st Amendments, Sit On My Base, Whornets, Oprah’s Ball Club, Hotmess Kickers, Public Enemy and Harder, Faster.

Learn more about the DC Stonewall Kickball on their Facebook page and website. Their spring season is about to wrap up with the summer season getting underway shortly; Stonewall Kickball also has a fall season. For more information, email info[AT]stonewallkickball.org.

We got pics!

It was Drag Kickball on Sunday evening, June 5, at Stead Park Field and hundreds of Borderstanis turned out for the fun. The event was sponsored by Stonewall Kickball and Capital Pride. The winner of the kickball competition was the team from Nellie’s Sports Bar (led by Miss Shiqueeta Lee) while the winner of the dance competition was the “Bottoms Up” team.

As Capital Pride billed the event on their website, “Two teams of local Drag Queens and members of the Stonewall Kickball league dressed in drag will compete to determine who the Queens of the Ball really are. Who will win? Who will cry? Most importantly, who will lose their weave?”
