In 1974, Armistead Maupin’s “Tales of the City” premiered in the Pacific Sun, depicting a naive, Midwestern young woman who becomes immersed in San Francisco’s LGBTQ scene. The serialized story, featuring 1970s San Francisco, would go on to become nine novels and three TV miniseries. Mary Ann, Anna, et al., are back again, this time in a Netflix series starring many of the original cast. We’ll talk with Maupin and Linney about the legacy and newest iteration of “Tales of the City.” And we want to hear from you: has “Tales of the City” represented your own San Francisco experience? Why or why not?
