Loved "Love, Simon" and need more gay rom-coms in your life? Netflix has you covered.

The streaming service released the first trailer for its upcoming film "Alex Strangelove" Wednesday.

Per Netflix:

High school senior Alex Truelove (Daniel Doheny) has it all - the grades, the girlfriend (Madeline Weinstein), and the motley crew of hilarious friends. Everything is smooth sailing until Alex shares that he's decided to part ways with his virginity - and meets Elliott (Antonio Marziale), a sweet and confident gay boy who isn't shy about his instant crush on Alex...who may or may not feel the same. Rocketed into an endearing and amusing journey of sexual and self-exploration, Alex ultimately learns that like so much of growing up, love can be confusing. And that's okay.

"Alex Strangelove" is written and directed by out filmmaker Craig Johnson, who helmed "Wilson" last year and "The Skeleton Twins" in 2014. The movie had its world premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival on April 14. "Alex Strangelove" will hit the streaming service just in time for Pride Month - viewers can watch the film starting June 8.

Check out the trailer below.
