Pop star Becky G will portray the first LGBTQ superhero in the new Power Rangers movie.
Trini, the Latina’s character in the new blockbuster, is coming to terms with her sexual orientation, and director Dean Israelite insists her bisexual realization is “pivotal” for the entire film.
“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
