Bob, Eureka and Shangela head west to Twin Falls, Idaho, a predominately Mormon community in Magic Valley. There, they meet Michael, Owen and Amelia, a group of local drag artists who need help forming a community.

In Branson, Mo., Bob, Eureka, and Shangela help three locals struggling to be their true selves in a community that prides itself on its traditional, religious values. Among them are Tanner, a young actor questioning whether it's possible for him to be both Christian and gay; Charles, a classically-trained dancer who wants to show that he's not just out, but proud; and Chris, a father grappling with mental health issues who's determined to embrace his emotions for the sake of his daughter.

The queens journey into the desert to help the residents of Farmington and Shiprock, N.M., foster unity and open-mindedness. In the process, they enlist: Nate, a gay, indigenous photographer eager to make a deeper connection with his Navajo people; Nicole, a proud lesbian, public defender and local LGBTQ activist who's constantly misgendered because she wears "men's" clothes; and Stacey and Jasmine, a mother-daughter duo processing the traumatic suicide of their beloved daughter and sister DJ.

Bob, Eureka, and Shangela head south to Ruston, La., to shake things up for a small town that's in need of some change. Among their drag children are: Jose, a young gay man tired of censoring himself in order to gain respect and acceptance; lifelong Ruston resident Stacy, an ex-firefighter and straight ally dedicated to using his influence to make his LGBTQ community members feel welcome; and Lynn, a tenacious, proud lesbian who is ready to dust off her old cowboy boots for her drag king debut.

Season 1 finale. COVID-19 disrupts the queens' production schedule, so they do what they do best: they make it work. Featuring some never-before-seen performances, Bob, Eureka and Shangela reflect—from the comfort of their homes—on how drag changed, and even saved, their lives. As the queens explore the show's impact, they shed new light on the life-changing experiences they've had traveling across the country and meeting local LGBTQ community members.

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

The former is about documenting joy and discovery - something this show does well. The latter is about jerking tears, which is something this show strains to do.

Apr 23, 2020 | Full Review…

On a deeper level, it's a show about loving -- truly loving -- your neighbor.

Apr 22, 2020 | Full Review…

Regardless of motivation, or level of drag familiarity, We're Here is a charming and engaging reality series and one well worth watching.

Apr 20, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Embracing reality, and exploring its subjects' lives with consideration and empathy, made We're Here one of the year's best reality shows.

Dec 16, 2020 | Rating: A+ | Full Review…

Drag queens empower in bawdy, uplifting reality series.

Aug 7, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

We're Here is HBO's take on Queer Eye, offering another feel-good, gay-friendly reality show about the power of confidence and the importance of having a team in your corner.

Jun 26, 2020 | Rating: A | Full Review…

In all of the drag lessons, the key ingredient in any show is confidence and attitude, and to see people without those things suddenly gain it by putting on a wig and swinging their hips in a way they've never dared to do before is a beautiful thing.

Jun 24, 2020 | Full Review…

The result... is some true fun.

Apr 27, 2020 | Full Review…

If To Wong Foo had a tawdry hookup with The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and Queer Eye, HBO's We're Here would be the product nine months later.

Apr 23, 2020 | Full Review…

We're Here is more than a drag show and more than a makeover show. It's an important watch that is just as sickening as it is heartwarming, and you're gonna want to have a box of tissues handy.

    What a wonderful show - if you haven't watched it, you must!! Heartwarming, funny, raw emotion - it all here :). I hope there is a season 2+!!
  • Jun 02, 2020
    What a wonderfully heartfelt show about togetherness and love. Just what we need to learn and practice in this crazy world.
  • May 27, 2020
    An amazing show! I hope this gets picked up for another season, seriously life-changing. There is never enough LGTBQIA+ representation in media, and this showcases everything. This docuseries follows three famous drag queens, as they travel to small towns with communities struggling to identify/accept LGTBQIA+ allies and members. The stories you can witness are impactful and can't help but make you feel joy. As an out gay man, I wish I had this show in my early years when I just felt like no one understood my situation. Please support this show and all involved... THE WORLD NEEDS MORE LOVE ❤️

    LOVE, LOVE, ABSOLUTELY LOVE, this show it actually warms my heart as well as tickle my funnybone!
  • May 22, 2020
    Bob, Eureka, and Shangela are the perfect cast to take us to small town America and guide us to a better version of ourselves. We're Here is a salve for a deeply troubled country.
  • May 22, 2020
    I am absolutely in LOVE with this show. It has you in tears 5 mins in all the way thru. Its not just some drag show it gets down to some serious issues people face in their day to day lives either being queer, having a family member or a friend that is or if your a supporter or the LGBTQ. I never miss a week and I just love Bob, Eureka and shangela in this show. They deal with each person with dignity, and LOVE. Tbats what the whole show is about showing, giving and receiving LOVE.
  • May 16, 2020
    Phenomenal. Love and positivity in a time we need it most.
  • May 16, 2020
    My only complain is that the episodes are too short! The transformations are so inspiring and heart breaking. I'm not typically cheesy but these towns and the individuals are so real and it just touches you.
  • May 15, 2020
    Amazing cast, stories, and production. Beware of waterworks
