ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Vida Lamour DeCosmo has been among Winnipeg's most popular drag queens for over 20 years. Vida's earliest stages were at local bars, reigning as Miss Happenings 2001-02, and then later as Miss Gio's 2012-13 and Miss Club 200 2013-14. But it is as Empress that Vida has contributed the most, directing the 'Court' of Winnipeg's fundraising over two 'reigns' (years). She first served as Empress of Winnipeg back in 2011-12, and then again in 2017-18. Vida has really started to focus on supporting young performers and giving them a stage that allows everyone a chance to grow., Vida also is very supportive of communities outside of Winnipeg, passing on her knowledge to those who are new and emerging onto the drag scene.\
