It’s been 41 years since Armistead Maupin‘s first Tales of the City book was published, 26 years since the initial PBS series based on that book aired, and now with a new incarnation premiering on Netflix, we thought it would be fun to return to the core of the books and find out: what Tales character are you?


After you take this quiz, feel free to double down and test your knowledge of all things Maupin and Tales with this pop quiz.
