Power Rangers film to feature a lesbian character
LGBTIQ characters questioning their sexuality are popping up in several films at the moment.
The latest is a lesbian character in the new Power Rangers movie.
The film’s director Dean Israelite, told the Hollywood Reporter Yellow Power Ranger Trini (Becky G) questions her sexuality in the action-packed superhero film.
“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is.
“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.”
The recently released Disney film, Beauty and the Beast, features gay character LeFou (Josh Gad) . The film has been banned in Malaysia due to the gay content.
