Star Trek Discovery's Blu Del Barrio: the Future of Non-Binary Space
Star Trek now celebrating 55 years, has been responsible for generations of franchise spinoffs including films, a multitude of TV shows, and even cartoons. Though Star Trek has always pushed the envelope in introducing themes related to politics, classism, racism, & gender equality, the LGBTQ family has just been recently welcomed to the table.
On this episode we chat with actor Blu Del Barrio, leading the way for non-binary actors and making Star Trek history along the way. Del Barrio was in their final year of studies at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) when they auditioned for and booked the role of Adira in Season 3 of Star Trek Discovery, becoming the first non-binary cast member as well as portraying Star Trek’s first non-binary regular recurring character on a series. Because of activists in front of and behind the camera in the Star Trek universe, Star Trek remains relevant and, dare we say, cool again?
We chatted about the importance of the arts in Blu’s life growing up, their first Star Trek convention, the world of politics, the younger generation’s take on the world, breaking Star Trek norms, finding your voice, and the hope of the future for the LGBTQ community. Hosted by Alexander Rodriguez
