Here’s how ‘Power Rangers’ addresses Trini’s sexuality

  • The Power Rangers movie will do something the original live-action series, and no major superhero film, has done before it: feature the first LGBTQ superhero.
  • The news comes from Power Rangers director Dean Israelite, who spoke with the Hollywood Reporter. The Yellow Ranger, Trini, played by Becky G addresses her sexuality while still “questioning a lot about who she is.”
  • “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet,” Israelite tells the Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
  • The news of Trini’s sexuality was quickly praised on the Twitterers. We have a description of the exact scene in which Trini talks about her sexuality (spoiler warning): Read more (3/20/17 6:51 PM)

I don’t care how bad the movie could be, I’m gonna support power rangers as much as I can because it’s super diverse with 4 out of 5 rangers being poc, and now it seems like one of them is an lgbt character so if you want more diversity in movies you should support this one

“When Becky G sat down with The Mary Sue, she was asked how it feels to be the first gay Latina Power Ranger. “It is an honor,” she said. “It’s something that I was very excited about and, as an actress, there’s nothing [more] that I could have asked for.” She wants to see that aspect of the character explored in the sequel, saying “The truth is with something like that, you don’t just wake up and know. It’s a process. And so, as time goes by, if we make Power Rangers 2, 3, 4 … I’m excited to see how she grows.”

Becky dead ass wanted Trini to explore more into her sexuality (we all know she wants her to get a girlfriend) n there might not even be a 2nd movie

Powerful Latinas in the music industry or I would say entertainment industry itself, there’s not much of a presence. And the little presence that there is we have some very incredible talent. You have people like Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, [Selena Quintanilla and Jenni Rivera may they rest in peace.] Leslie Grace, Karol G, Sofia Reyes - we’re like the younger generation that’s coming through. There’s so many but compared to the bigger percentage of the entertainment business I also feel like we’re just this little drop in the water. I think although we’re little we do make an impact and that’s something really special. Our message is that we’re proud of where we come from. And we’re proud of who we are, the color of our skin, our language and the passion that we bring.

Black, brown, Asian, and First Nations people, for a multitude of reasons, have made their way across the entire globe. In seeking the future or fleeing the past, we have had to emigrate, assimilate, change our names, learn new tongues, abandon customs, forget our histories, leave behind our religions.

Forgive your brothers and sisters who may not speak the language. Be patient with your brothers and sisters who speak with Western accents and stumble through traditional greetings. Love your brothers and sisters who don’t know their cultures and have forgotten their ancestors. It has never been their fault.
