Oscar Quintero (Kay Sedia)
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.
Koehler is an east coast transplant since 1996. His misspent youth grew up
and migrated to NYC. There he graduated from
with a BFA in Acting and Minor in Directing. Since in
he has worked in the industry behind the scenes in casting, agent
assistance and filmmaking.
Koehler’s filmmaking has earned him over eight awards for four separate
short films. His films have traveled the
and around the world. He has never left the
, but his films have. The titles include SUPERFAG, Taco Chick and
Salsa Girl, Hung Frankenstein and The
