Jade Esteban Estrada says
Beauty. Art. Flamboyance. Love. Struggle. Fame. ICONS: The Lesbian and Gay History of the World, Vol. 1 is a solo musical comedy created and performed by solo theatre artist Jade Esteban Estrada. In this multidisciplinary performance piece, Estrada portrays Sappho, Michelangelo, Oscar Wilde, Gertrude Stein, Sylvia Rivera and Ellen Degeneres. "Jade Esteban Estrada's ICONS series celebrates the heretofore-secret history of unsung and legendary gay heroes from Freddie Mercury to valiant Stonewall activist Sylvia Rae Rivera. Each icon is finely etched. Estrada is a consummate performer of 1,000 faces. ICONS I-IV not only informs its audience but also imbues it with GLBTQ pride." - San Antonio Current. "Without a doubt, the best entertainment dollars I spent this year went to 'ICONS: The Lesbian and Gay History of the World, Vol. 1' with Jade Esteban Estrada." - Tampa Bay Gazette. Estrada is an actor, singer and all-around diva. Characters like the sultry Sappho, the wise Stein and the flamboyant Wilde speak to the audience from their own respective time periods, focusing less on their sexuality and more on their lives and perspectives. It's funny, stirring and even educational. Estrada is a bit of an icon himself." - Houston Press.
