Here’s Your First Look at “We’re Here” Season 2

It's a touchdown, henny!

In case you haven’t heard, football is queer, according to a new video from the NFL.

At least three queens got the memo: Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara, and Shangela, who are sporting some fierce, football-inspired fashion in the first image from the upcoming second season of HBO’s We’re Here.

Last summer, HBO renewed the Emmy-nominated unscripted series for Season 2, but production was put on pause due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While we still don’t know where the drag trio are traveling this time around, we finally got our first preview of the new episodes when HBO tweeted out a photo yesterday (June 29). These looks are a touchdown, henny!

Speaking to Logo last year, Bob, Eureka, and Shangela all agreed that they would love to return to their small hometowns in the upcoming season. “I’ll go anywhere because I loved it, but I really want to come back to my hometown of Paris, Texas. I think that would be something super special,” said Shangela. “All of us are from small towns. Eureka’s from a small one in Tennessee, and Bob’s from a small one in Georgia.”

Eureka was even thinking outside the continental 48: “I would love to be able to do a Hawaiian city. There’s a big drag circuit in Hawaii, but that has its own element of small town-ness because it’s native to Hawaii. Maybe even Alaska, it’d be fun!”

Could we see a drag queen lūʻau? Guess we’ll find out when We’re Here Season 2 premieres later this year on HBO.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
