HBO’s drag queen show will film in New Jersey

All kinds of projects have been filmed here in New Jersey, from “The Many Saints of Newark” to “The Equalizer” to “Clerks 3.” But this next project is a little different from those.

HBO will film an episode of “We’re Here,” a reality show in which drag queens visit cities and hold drag shows. According to the HBO website:

The show follows Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara and Shangela as they continue their journey to spread love and connection to small town America through the art of drag. Each episode of this Emmy®-nominated unscripted series finds renowned drag queens recruiting local residents to perform in one-night-only drag shows and inspiring their “drag kids” to speak out in front of family, friends and their communities.

As they work with people struggling with insecurities to fully embrace each other, Bob, Eureka and Shangela help their students release their inner drag queens for comforting and breathtaking performances, celebrating individuality and self-acceptance. while bringing communities together through the transformative power of swiping.

Sounds like a pretty big order.

The show, now in its third season, has won two Emmys. Each episode with a full drag show featuring the locals recruited in that episode.

No air date has been set for the most recent season – so be on the lookout for drag queens in Sussex and Warren counties.
