Welcome to the Washington Blade’s 13th annual Best of Gay D.C. readers’ poll.

Last year we had 71 categories. This year, we’re up to 73. And we again broke a participation record having logged more than 20,000 votes in the past two months.

Even if you’ve lived in Washington for decades, the fun of this contest is that there’s always something new to discover, from a tasty meal at Barcelona (if you can find a table!) to a show at Olney Theatre Company to many other entertainment options.

The profiles were written by Kevin Naff, Joey DiGuglielmo, Lou Chibbaro Jr., Chris Johnson, Patrick Folliard, Mariah Cooper and Santiago Melli-Huber.

The Blade staff congratulates each of this year’s winners and finalists.
