Drag queens gave their enthusiastic support Thursday to Dining Out for Life, a Food & Friends fundraiser to benefit people with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses. More than 130 Washington-area restaurants participated, contributing 25 percent to 110 percent of that day’s lunch and dinner proceeds.
