When the reboot of the popular 鈥90s kids show Power Rangers comes out聽this week, it鈥檚 promising to be a whole new kind of superhero franchise in more ways than one. First, we learned that Billy the Blue Ranger, played by RJ Cyler, would be on the Autism spectrum, and now we鈥檝e learned that Trini the Yellow Ranger will be the first openly lesbian superhero.

Trini鈥檚 sexual identity is introduced during a scene when the character (played by Becky G) reveals that her presumed boyfriend troubles might actually be girlfriend troubles.

鈥淔or Trini, really she鈥檚 questioning a lot about who she is,鈥 director Dean Israelite told聽The Hollywood Reporter.聽鈥淪he hasn鈥檛 fully figured it out yet. I think what鈥檚 great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 okay.鈥 The movie is saying, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 okay,鈥 and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.鈥

In the original series, the actor who played the Blue Ranger, David Yost, was openly gay, but ended up leaving the series after being harassed for his sexual orientation. 鈥淭hey really stepped up to the plate,鈥 Yost told The Hollywood Reporter聽of the new film. 鈥淚 think so many people in the LGBTQI community are going to be excited to see that representation.鈥

He鈥檚 not the only one who is praising Trini鈥檚 coming out:
