We’re Here is back with a vengeance and a purpose, and I’m here for it!
After halting production due to COVID in 2020, HBO’s We’re Here is back with even a better show, more touching stories, and a purpose: Empowering all LGBTQ+ folks that are under-represented or just ignored.
Bob The Drag Queen, Shangela and Eureka O’Hara are back. This time, going deeper into the conservative states and even off mainland to Hawaii. Each episode brought three stories more touching than the ones from the previous one. We even got an overdue wedding and get to meet some of the original Selma civil rights protestors. This season is much more than just drag. It’s about the people that chose to use these performances to make their voices heard. Their stories, their hardships, as well as their love for life.
With a step up in fashion, looks, performances and stories, HBO clearly had a bigger budget this time around for a longer season. And I loved every minute of it. Can’t wait for a third and fourth seasons. Fingers Crossed!
Should you watch it?
At this point in time, We’re Here is doing more for the LGBTQ+ folks than any drag race franchise. This is the type of shows we need to be honest.
