We R Here Media is made up of your everyday, ordinary fans of television, film, music, and more. However, we are different in that we are queer-identified or queer-allied, and we want to change the world of media, all forms of media, to be more queer-centered and positive.
For too long, LGBTQ+ fans have been forced to reside in the margins of contemporary media, particularly television and film. We were told too often to accept either no representation, essentially demanding that we find images of ourselves in a heteronormative and heterosexist, if not downright homophobic, world, or if we did get a morsel of representation, then it we should not fuss if it is not positive or if it is grounded in damaging stereotypes and overused tropes.
We R Here Media says that enough is enough.
Not only are LGBTQ+ and allied viewers consumers of media but we are the shapers of media, even creators of media. We are the future of media.
Simply put, there needs to be more and better queer-positive representation in our media, and We R Here Media is here, loud and proud, to push for it, encourage it, and even make it, if necessary, by engaging, harnessing, utilizing, and promoting the talents of our community.
We R Here…to be a driving force for media change.
