The Yellow Ranger in the new “Power Rangers” movie has a secret. Well, it’s not really a secret, but… She’s gay!
It’s not a huge part of the movie. There’s just a scene where another character realizes she’s having “girlfriend problems”
The director says, quote, “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.”
She’s being played by rap star BECKY G.
The actor who played the original Blue Ranger is thrilled to see this change. His name is David Yost and he’s openly gay. But David felt like he had to leave the series back in the ’90s because some people weren’t cool with that. Terrible!
