Netflix is making the Yuletide gay with the release of the first trailer for its first gay Christmas rom-com, Single All The Way.

The festive film follows best friends Peter (Michael Urie) and Nick (Philemon Chambers) as they return to Peter’s family home for the festive season.

The pair initially decide to pretend they’re in a relationship, to stop Peter’s family from obsessing about his perpetually single status.

However the two men’s plan quickly goes awry. Peter’s mother (Kathy Najimy) sets him up on a blind date with personal trainer James (Luke Macfarlane).

The film hits Netflix in three weeks, and the streaming service has released the Christmas movie’s trailer this week.

And Peter’s Aunt Sandy, played by The White Lotus star Jennifer Coolidge, looks set to steal every scene she’s in.

“The gays just know how to do stuff,” she declares. “For some reason, they’re always obsessed with me.”

The film’s writer and executive producer Chad Hodge certainly thinks so.

He explained Single All the Way has “all the things I personally wanted to see in a holiday rom-com.”

“The list ran the gamut. From honestly portraying the uniqueness of gay friendships and relationships, to the often hilarious dynamics of our families, to Jennifer Coolidge,” he said.

“I’m so grateful to Netflix for embracing all of it.”

Single All The Way is one of a few LGBTIQ Christmas movies to come out in recent years.

The most high profile, Happiest Season, came out last year starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis as a lesbian couple.

Single All The Way arrives on Netflix on December 2. Watch the trailer below:
