'Power Rangers' to feature first openly lesbian character

Power Rangers will feature the first ever gay superhero in a film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, one of the scenes depict Trini as confronting her issues with her sexuality, where her boyfriend problems were actually girlfriend problems.

"For Trini, really she's questioning a lot about who she is", Israelite told THR.

'She hasn't fully figured it out yet.

"The movie is saying, 'That's OK, ' and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe".

But in reaction to news of a gay Yellow Ranger, Yost praised the new film for its bravery.

The new "Power Rangers" movie includes an LGBT character. I do hope that Trini's "pivotal" moment is handled well and doesn't spiral into bigots in Alabama banning the movie.

'They really stepped up to the plate, ' Yost said. There have been several queer characters on Marvel's TV shows and Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) on Arrow is gay, but there haven't been any visible gay superheroes in Marvel or DC's films.

The Yellow Ranger was originally straight in the first installment to the Power Rangers franchise, the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" TV series of the 1990s.

The coming out storyline of Alex Danvers, Supergirl's adoptive sister, this season prompted a hugely positive reaction from fans and the LGBT community.

Right now, conservatives all over the world are throwing temper tantrums over the fact that Disney's new Beauty and the Beast movie features a gay character in the form of LeFou, although with an astonishing gross of $352,275,977, they can take their bigoted views and stuff them. Star Trek Beyond made headlines with Sulu, Beauty and the Beast had an global brouhaha over LeFou's blink-and-you-miss-it "gay moment", and now it's Power Rangers' turn.
