Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara and Shangela Laquifa Wadley on the Power of Pride

They might have found fame on RuPaul’s Drag Race, but Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara, and Shangela Laquifa Wadley cemented their status as legendary on We’re Here.

The series, which just had its season finale and was also just renewed for a second season, followed the three drag stars to small towns across America, such as Branson, Missouri, and Ruston, Louisiana. Bob, Eureka, and Shangela connected with residents queer and straight, cis and trans, every spectrum of humanity, and allowed them to speak their truths — and then show themselves in drag.

Here, the stars and creators of the show share their thoughts on why being seen this month is vital for the LGBTQ community. And above, watch PEOPLE's exclusive clip of their lip-sync to Alessia Cara's song "Scars to Your Beautiful."





"LGBTQ visibility is extremely important. I always think of my younger self and think how much more comfortable I would have felt with my own self and my own queerness if I had more out loud and proud Black queer visibility in my life. The recent protests and surge in activism and awareness surrounding the treatment of Black communities in America has really inspired me about the future of this country. As a proud Black gay drag entertainer, it’s important to me that that those of us in the Black community stand up for what is right, and we stand up for every member, especially gay and Trans."
