Before its premiere, tonight, Pose has already set and surpassed records–can you believe it?

Created by the talented Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals, Pose will tell the story of the late1980’s New York City ballroom scene and the transgender community.

We have so much to expect from this ground-breaking series, but perhaps most commendable of all is that it will contain the largest LGBT cast that will have series regular roles.

The story we can look forward to seeing involves a character named Blanca (MJ Rodriguez) who is a transgender woman who switches houses and creates her own with younger, homeless individuals from the LGBT community.

And if you’re not already aware, we can expect to see James Van Der Beek and Evan Peters in the series. They will provide a look at Donald Trump’s life and organization as he was gaining popularity and making a name for himself at the time.

The character of Trump will not actually be in the series but tidbits about his life and how it plays into the plot of the series will drive the story forward. This will be accomplished by using a Trump Organization executive (Van Der Beek) instead of Trump.

I think the more intriguing aspect of the series will be seeing a 1980’s Manhattan with two very distinct communities–rich white folks and the LGBT community.

We will see the story explore a lot of the struggles that were present at that time as the transgender community competes against society’s objection to their lifestyle and of course, the inevitable HIV/AIDS epidemic.

One of the most anticipated aspects of the series will be that the transgender community the series seeks to portray is a big part of the show through its actors and writers. This brings an authenticity and excitement to watching the show because it is real and honest to its core.

Next: What to expect from Ryan Murphy’s new FX series Pose

There hasn’t been a show quite like Pose before and it is the perfect homage to Ryan Murphy bidding farewell to FX as he makes his way to Netflix. Thank you, Ryan Murphy, for bringing untold stories to life, and giving a voice to those that didn’t have a platform before you.

Pose premieres on Sunday, June 3rd at 9 PM EST on FX!
