This weekend, Lady Red Couture, a well known drag entertainer in L.A. and the co-host of the youtube talk show Hey Qween died at the age of 43.
Jonny McGovern, who co-hosted the talk show with Lady Red, announced the news on social media saying “It doesn’t feel real but the beautiful light that was Lady Red is gone. I love you baby. I will miss you every day.”
Please enjoy this encore presentation of our podcast with Lady Red recorded on 11.18.15.
