becky+gBecky G‘s character in the upcoming “Power Rangers” reboot is gay. In fact, the film will be the first major motion picture to feature an LGBTQ superhero.

Director Dean Israelite revealed to “The Hollywood Reporter” that Yellow Ranger Trini will be a queer character. In a “pivotal” scene in the movie, Trini will be struggling with what a fellow Ranger assumes are “boyfriend problems.” In fact, Trini is dealing with “girlfriend problems.”

“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” Dean said. “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet.”

Apparently, the film will give Trini the support and space she needs around her sexual identity.

“I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’” Dean said. “The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.
