Just in time for Pride Month, two of the most anticipated LGBTQ+ projects of the summer have released their first trailers.

First up is Billy Eichner's gay rom-com, and romp by the looks of the trailer, "Bros."

Making history as the first gay romantic comedy from a major studio featuring an entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast, the trailer doesn't disappoint in its directness at depicting the differences between gay and straight relationships.

Eichner plays an openly gay writer who has been tasked with writing a gay rom-com (how meta!) when he stumbles into his own love played by Luke Macfarlane, Variety reported.

"Am I going to be in the middle of some high speed chase and all of a sudden fall in love with Ice Cube? Am I going to get butt fucked by Jason Momoa while worrying about a volcano?" Eichner's character asks about his task of writing a rom-com. "Something a straight guy might like?"

As sarcastic and over as he may seem in the trailer, Eichner could not be more excited that the trailer for the film is finally here, writing in all caps: "LET'S MAKE HISTORY. IN THEATERS SEPT 30."

In a note accompanying to the trailer, Eichner also said he addressed the "LGBTQ+ elites." He explained that he wanted to make "an authentic, hilarious and heartfelt film about what it's like to be a single adult gay man attempting a relationship in 2022."

From the looks of the trailer, Eichner is off to a good start with the final film out in September. Also on to something is Peacock's "Queer as Folk" reimagining expected to hit TV screens this summer on June 9.

Although this is the third incarnation of the LGBTQ-themed drama, the trailer shows a fresh take on Russell T. Davies' original series.

Set in New Orleans, with a diverse cast of cuties to boot, the series picks up after a Pulse-like nightclub shooting shakes the community to its core. Then characters, including Jesse ?James Keitel, Johnny Silby, Fin Argus, Devin Way, CG, and Ryan O'Connell star, with Juliette Lewis, Kim Cattrall, Lukas Gage, and Nyle DiMarco, all work together to pick up the pieces.
