The Queer Review: TV Review: We’re Here

Debuting on HBO on Thursday April 23rd a six episode unscripted series, We’re Here, takes three Drag Race stars, Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara and Shangela Laquifa Wadley off the runway on to a cross-country roadtrip to stage one-night-only drag shows, transforming a diverse array of local residents into fierce queens, thereby empowering them to discover their true selves. Think the intimate Werk Room chats and the uplifting, unbridled joy and artistry of Drag Race performances plus the emotional journeys and cathartic tears of Queer Eye, via beloved movies about fish(y queens) out-of-water in conservative small towns like To Wong Foo and Priscilla Queen of the Desert – but with better vehicles. These gals announce We’re Here in style.
