About this entry

We aimed to drive awareness and buzz among the LGBTQ+ community and allies to promote the premiere of HBO’s real life unscripted series, We’re Here, which follows small-town residents as they’re recruited and trained to participate in a one-night only drag performance - with the help of their Drag Mothers: Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara, and Shangela Laquifa Wadley.

Our goal was to drive this awareness and buzz via social media - leveraging LGBTQ+ influencers and their audience to generate earned social media value, organic social impressions, and expansive reach.

Why does this entry deserve to win?


Our over-the-top DIY WERQkit to promote HBO’s We’re Here left the LGBTQ+ community gagging. We generated $2.9M social media value (14.5x ROI), garnered 13.1M+ organic social impressions, created 714 pieces of content and reached over 9.9M with an audience of 63.6M+ followers and subscribers.
