Oscar Quintero (Kay Sedia)
Co-creator/Writer/Producer

Oscar Quintero was born In Hacienda Heights, CA a suburb outside of Los Angeles, the youngest of six children. Oscar knew in order for him to be heard, he would have to speak up. And that he did! In the sixth grade he was cast as the lead in the Glenalder Elementary School Play, “Christmas Fever” where he caught the acting bug. From then on, he looked for ways to be in front of a crowd, like joining the drama club in high school and taking a few acting classes in College. It was in 1999 that Oscar got his break as he met his alter ego, Kay Sedia, when he auditioned for a drag pageant fundraiser called “Quest for the Crown”.

It was at that event that things really began to take shape. Being named the runner-up was the best outcome that could've happened for Oscar. As he became a crowd favorite, many club owners and promoters began to ask for Kay Sedia to make appearances at various local clubs and events. That is where Oscar met Mr. Dan, the owner of Dragstripp 66 and The Plush Life. They began to collaborate and perform together for the next seven years. It was performing in the Plush Life, a weekly drag improv soap opera that Oscar realized and developed his sense of comedic timing. It was thru this show that Oscar met Kurt Koehler and thus began another great collaborating relationship. While writing Superfag, a short film about a gay Superman, Kurt added a part for Kay Sedia as her alter ego, Taco Chick, and created side kick, Salsa Girl, as a spoof of the Sid & Marty Croft kids morning show, “Electra Woman and Dyna Girl”.

One year later, in the summer of 2003, the two began to collaborate on what was to become a big underground hit in Silverlake, CA ; “Chico’s Angels”, a Latin drag queen version of the popular 70’s T.V. show Charlie’s Angels. Over the next five years, four original stage shows, “Pretty Chicas All In A Row”, “Love Boat Chicas”, “Chicas In Chains” and “Chicas Are 4Ever”played to sold out audiences starring the three Angels; Kay Sedia, Chita Parole, and Frieda Laye. Seeing the popularity of Chico’s Angels, they decided to give “Taco Chick and Salsa Girl” their own short film. It has traveled festivals around the world and has won many awards. More recently, Kurt and Oscar helped create and produce, “Cooking With Kay”, a T.V. pilot presentation about a bitter cooking show diva who’s forced to work with a former Tijuana beauty queen, Kay Sedia. The show is currently being shopped around; a short trailer can be seen at www.cookingwithkay.com

Oscar has also been in three feature films, ALIEN GAME, GETTING LUCKY and AU PAIR, KANSAS starring Traci Lords, as well as in the short films SPEAK ENGLISH AMIGOS, HEIRLOOM, and ALMOST MARRIED. He has studied with Jd Lewis of the Actors Lab.
