FX has released the first official trailer for Ryan Murphy’s latest series “Pose.”

Set in the ’80s, the series “looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world,” according to the show’s description.

The series features the largest LGBTQ cast in scripted television history as well as the largest number of transgender actors in main roles.

MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Hailie Shar, Angelica Ross and Dominique Jackson all star in the show along with Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and “American Horror Story” veteran, Evan Peters.

The trailer kicks off with Jackson as a house mother. “Focus, children,” Jackson tells the group. “It’s time to remind the world who we are.”

Rodriguez’s character comes across Jamaal Swain, who portrays a ballet dancer trying to make it big. Swain refuses to join her house until he finds himself homeless on the streets and decides to accept the invitation.

Meanwhile, Peters’ character finds himself wrapped up in a romantic affair with Moore’s character.

“Pose” premieres on June 3 on FX.
