Watch: ‘When We Rise’ Trailer with Whoopi and Rosie

The ABC miniseries event about the LGBTQ rights movement, “When We Rise,” shot earlier this year in San Francisco and Vancouver, is set for a February premiere, and the network just released the first official trailer.

The seven-episode, eight-hour miniseries stars Guy Pearce as longtime gay activist and Harvey Milk acolyte Cleve Jones, on whose just-published memoir the series is based, and also features Whoopi Goldberg, Mary Louise Parker, Rosie O’Donnell, and more.

From the trailer above, this one looks like it will be moving. I just downloaded Cleve’s book and plan to start reading tonight. Cleve Jones just hosted the book kickoff party this weekend in San Francisco but I unfortunately was not able to attend.

You can download the book here.
