"Funny and  irreverent...a feel-good session for gay people."

"Long before Estrada wraps himself with a rainbow-colored  flag at the show's 
end, he's proven that he's a master entertainer with a  message to convey."

"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  

"Catch ICONS as soon as you  can, or you will surely live to regret it."

"Estrada is a drama queen with a lesson  plan."

"Estrada's bug-eyed portrayal  of Gertrude Stein is brilliant."
