Becky G’s character in Power Rangers has just been revealed to be gay.
The film is BREAKING ground with the FIRST queer, Big screen superhero!
The Lionsgate reboot of the ’90s children’s TV show is the first big-budget superhero movie to feature an LGBT character. Becky G plays the Yellow Power Ranger in the film – and the director explained that the scene where the news is revealed is small but “pivotal.”
In the scene Trini is going through relationship problems, which one of the heroes assumes is “boyfriend problems,” but then discovers it’s actually “girlfriend problems.”
The director gushed to The Hollywood reporter saying QUOTE: “For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” saying “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
There are some superheroes that have represented the LGBTQ community before, but it’s never actually been translated on the big screen. And while this is only a small moment in the movie, it’s ground breaking none the less.
