Meet some of the artists, disruptors, educators, groundbreakers, innovators, and storytellers who all helped make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people.

It can be hard creating content that finds that sweet spot of being both socially important and extremely entertaining, but the Emmy-nominated, GLAAD Award-winning creative duo of Johnnie Ingram and Stephen Warren know exactly how to hit it. The proof? Their two beloved, unscripted Max shows: We’re Here and Swiping America.

Considering the anti-LGBTQ+ climate sweeping the nation, We’re Here’s mission statement of using popular Drag Race queens to help spread messages of love and acceptance to small communities in middle America is incredibly timely. On the flip side, their “rom-doc” Swiping America — with its four-person cast that is half-queer and three-fourths people of color — shows the world that LGBTQ+ folks are worthy and deserving of romantic love, especially in times like these. (Ingram and Warren are husbands as well.)

“We hope to continue telling LGBTQ+ stories that matter and are currently developing more queer-inclusive unscripted TV shows and documentaries,” say Ingram and Warren, who are preparing to release a fourth season of We’re Here.

We’re Here has become a very challenging show to make in the current anti-LGBTQ+ political climate. In order to document the proliferation of hateful legislation and violence directed at our community, rather than moving from town to town each episode, we modified the format for our fourth season to focus on just two locations for the entire season. We can confidently say this season will be our best yet.” @johnnieinstagram @thestevewarren
