If you’re ready to shed some happy gay tears on this day, I’ve got good news for you: Yesterday Netflix dropped the first trailer for its Lauren Morelli-helmed, Ellen Page-anchored Tales of the City reboot and holy heck! I don’t think I’m allowed to say anything specific, but I think I can say I’ve watched several of the first season’s episodes and cried during every one of them (in a good way). This trailer really captures the spirit of the thing, which Morelli described a few weeks ago as “The escape that I hope we all kind of deserve right now. The characters deserve it, we, as an audience, deserve it. Let’s just create a safe space where we can disappear an hour at a time.”
Tales of the City lands on June 7. You’ll find your reviews and interviews right here on Autostraddle dot com very soon.
