Meet Rebekah, Marvels First Transgender Superhero

For those of you who have Disney+ I suggest checking out Marvel’s Hero Project if you haven’t already. For those of you who don’t know what it is about, here is what they say it is: 

“Marvel’s Hero Project reveals the remarkable, positive change several young, real life heroes are making in their own communities. These inspiring, driven and engaging kids have dedicated their lives to selfless acts of bravery and kindness. Theses young heroes are finding creative solutions to tackle big issues such as protecting the environment, ending hunger, championing inclusivity, and many more. Now, Marvel celebrates them as the true Super Heroes they are by welcoming them into Marvel’s Hero Project.”

Rebekah and her parents are doing all that they can do to help change the world for the better. Starting off in their own home state of New Jersey. Her and her parents teamed up with Garden State Equality to give speeches to all to let everyone know that Trans people are not the so called villains that the government and right wing media is making them out to be. She even was able to get across to her own Governor Phil Murphey that would mandate LGBTQ+ history in public schools.

Rebekah told the state legislators that she had never seen anyone like her in history that they are teaching in schools. The advocate sat down with this incredible young lady for an interview. And little does Rebekah know that she is indeed making a huge difference in her state. Perhaps the rest of the states will start teaching LGBTQ+ history in schools. Check out a small snippet of the show here.
