Watch Ellen Page and Lauren Morelli’s “Tales of the City” Trailer and Cry Some Happy Gay Tears

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.
