Boasting an impressive 11 years on air, RuPaul's Drag Race has blazed a trail for drag culture and is one of the most culturally significant shows around. Now, a new reality TV series featuring three of Drag Race's best-loved alums promises an even more dramatic sashay into mainstream America's consciousness. Read on to find out how to watch We're Here online and stream the all-new episode 4, no matter where you are in the world right now.

We're Here cheat sheet

We're Here made its debut on HBO at 9pm PT/ET on April 23, with new episodes of the 6-part series being aired every Thursday on the network at the same time. Cord-cutters can get HBO as an add-on for Hulu.

The show follows three of Drag Race's most familiar stars, Shangela Laquifa Wadley, Bob The Drag Queen, and Eureka O’Hara, as they head to small towns across America and put on drag shows for the locals.

Each episode sees the show's three stars rock up in town and meet up with a handful of locals they’ll be tutoring ahead of a one-night-only drag show. Participants come from both ends of the American landscape, ranging from seasoned Queer artists to former homophobes.

Fans of makeover show's like Queer Eye will appreciate some of the incredible drag transformations that take place, while the show also shines a light on societal differences, with the trio experiencing both hostility and support as their act rolls into town.

Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch We're Here online from anywhere - stream episode 4 and the entire miniseries for free.

How to watch We're Here from outside your country

As We're Here is a HBO exclusive, anyone from America who's currently abroad won't find it being aired simultaneously in places like the UK, Canada or Australia. Moreover, trying to tune into HBO like you would from home will likely be impossible because of geo-blocking restrictions.

We know that this might not be a likely scenario for many, due to coronavirus travel restrictions, but the fact is people are still being required to travel - and some are even regrettably stuck abroad during this difficult time.

Fortunately, there is a solution in the form of a VPN. This nifty bit of software changes your IP address so that you can access all the content you normally would at home, from anywhere in the world.

However, note that some services require you to verify local credit card or cable subscription details before gaining access, so make sure you have these to hand before signing up for anything.
