Biography

American entertainer, a successful Latin pop singer, comedian, choreographer, actor, political commentator, and human rights activist. Out Magazine called him "the first gay Latin star."

After two popular appearances as a transgender singer/dancer on NBC's The Jerry Springer Show, he won the attention of Latin TV personality Charo and worked as her choreographer and lead dancer. He gained international recognition in 1998 when he released his first Latin pop single, "Reggae Twist" on the Brooklyn-based Total Envision Records label. He later turned his attention to solo theater and stand-up comedy.

In 2008, he hosted the 19th Annual South Florida GLAAD Media Awards on Bravo. During the Obama Administration, he was invited to The White House to attend the State Arrival Ceremony welcoming the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderón and First Lady Margarita Zavala.

As his interest in politics developed, the world of talk radio took notice offering him a frequent seat alongside government officials like San Antonio mayor Julian Castro. In 2013, Estrada began writing for the San Antonio Current.

In 2012, Estrada joined the Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue at the Gibson Guitar Lounge at Maggie Mae's in Austin, Texas. Donning his signature velvet tuxedo and pink feather boa, he went on to emcee burlesque shows for the Ruby Revue (Houston), After Dark Revue (Corpus Christi), Keyhole Cabaret (San Diego), the Scarlet Darlings (San Antonio), the Onyx Theatre (Las Vegas), Black Cherry Burlesque (Tucson) and Monday Night Tease (Hollywood). As a solo act, he competed in the 2013 Burlympics in Los Angeles.
