- Select Reviews“'Through working with queer young people of color for over 20 years, our organization has seen first-hand how social and economic boundaries make it difficult for our clients to showcase their talents and create platforms for themselves,' explains Sean/Milan, phoning from the REACH LA offices. 'Miss Slay L.A. is yet another opportunity for queer young people of color to not only explore their artistic expression, but also receive acknowledgement for their contributions to their communities.'” – Michael Ciriaco for The LA Weekly, May 2017"
Far from the nightlife of disco balls, alcohol and loud music like one might have imagined for such an event, books and artwork could be seen as guests entered the gallery store to the main stage. Inside was a wooden catwalk, lightning, and a simple backstage were built up for the drag queen competition." – June Phan for the Pasadena City College Courier, June 2017
