"Out, loud, and proud SA  performance artist Jade Esteban Estrada is used 
to turning heads. Most recently,  he appeared in a pink feather boa to 
introduce Richard Lewis at the newly opened  Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club. Estrada 
has written a solo musical comedy in  observance of World AIDS Week entitled, 
A Lullaby for Ryan: The History of  HIV/AIDS in America. In the play, 
Estrada channels characters such as Rock  Hudson, Miss Protease Inhibitor 1996, “
Boobs” (AKA the Bubonic Plague), and a  mother of three named LaShonda to 
illustrate courageous and poignant stories of  triumph."
