"THR brings word that part of Power Rangers’ human element involves the Yellow Ranger, Trini (played by actress Becky G), coming to terms with her sexual orientation. In one scene, a character assumes Trini is having “boyfriend problems,” but quickly comes to realize that she’s having “girlfriend problems.” Director Dean Israelite explains what he thinks is one of the movie’s “pivotal” moments:
“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 original '90s Blue Ranger actor David Yost left the series after facing harassment over being gay - and now, nearly 25 years later, he praised the film's progressive step in the right direction.
He said in a TooFab interview: 'They really stepped up to the plate. I think so many people in the LGBTQI community are going to be excited to see that representation.'
also while i dont know if its the first the blue ranger is also an autist
"Equally as groundbreaking and significant is the new Blue Ranger Billy - played by RJ Cyler - who is on the 'autism spectrum.'"
