Star Trek Discovery Announces Non-Binary and Transgender Additions to Cast

"Star Trek: Discovery" has announced that they will be adding the first non-binary and transgender characters to their franchise in season three. Blu del Barrio will portray Adira, the show's first non-binary character and Ian Alexander will portray Gray, the first transgender actor in the franchise.

Michelle Paradise, co-showrunner and executive producer said, "Star Trek has always made a mission of giving visibility to underrepresented communities because it believes in showing people that a future without division on the basis of race, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation is entirely within our reach. We take pride in working closely with Blu del Barrio, Ian Alexander, and Nick Adams at GLAAD to create the extraordinary characters of Adira and Gray, and bring their stories to life with empathy, understanding, empowerment, and joy."

The third season of "Star Trek: Discovery" will debut on October 15, 2020.
