2024 Spoleto performer Sasha Velour has made her premiere as one of four hosts of HBO’s fourth season of We’re Here, an EMMY award winning original series with a mission of spreading love and connection through the art of drag across small-town America.  

Deadline is hailing the new season as “a movement–a call to action, and a profound narrative of resilience in the face of adversity.”  

This season, along with Sasha, queens Priyanka, Jaida Essence Hall, and Latrice Royale, explore recent anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and its effect on the communities of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, and their surrounding towns. 

Sasha told The Daily Beast’s Obsessed “I was really excited, a little bit nervous because the political climate has changed a lot for the worse since the show started. I think there was a slight backlash to drag in all the places that the queens traveled before, but that backlash has gotten so much more organized and filled with hate, misinformation, and fears about not just drag, but trans people, nonbinary people, young people who are identifying as queer and trans.” 

Velour, a gender-fluid drag queen known for her performance artistry and fierce activism, is bringing “The Big Reveal Live Show” to Spoleto on Thursday, June 6. This new 90-minute show will present an immersive evening of drag, storytelling, and live art, featuring iconic new performances from Velour herself in a show that will have you screaming with laughter at the start, and openly weeping by the end.
