Remember The Original Blue Power Ranger? He's Gay!

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay Gay

Shocking? Perhaps not, but what might be is how rough he had it back at Angel Grove High! We feel so bad for him!

Check out this interview with David Yost, the original Blue Power Ranger, that he did at Anime Festival Orlando 2010. (above)

He talks about being apart of the NOH8 campaign, the harassment he faced while being on the show and joining a "Pray The Gay Away" group.

So sad! He seems like a really nice guy! He didn't deserve that kind of cruelty!

    Grow up you filthy twunt…

    Welcome to 12 years ago.. This is OLD new. I knew this so long ago…..



  8. 8

    not shocking at all. my gaydar was strong even at 9 years old, lol.



  9. 9

    He was always my favorite. I was attracted to his beautiful spirit. I stopped watching when he left. I had no idea of what he went through! How terrible. I just want to give him a big hug!



  10. 10

    the nerdy one!



  11. 11

    wow I never would have recognized him. He used to be cute. He's still a hell of a lot more attractive than Perez Hilton though



  12. 12

    That is a lot of whining coming from somebody who spent much of his time on t.v. with his head hidden within a helmet. 7 min 28 secs. Did he even have that much air time per Power Rangers episode?.

    Not to discount the pain of being a homosexual in a skintight blue jumpsuit (for we've all endured the looks when we pull those on) …but doesn't he sort of betray himself a bit when he says that producers on Power Rangers would have maybe allowed him to direct for the show?

    And really, does anyone believe that no other men involved in a show about anonymous, masked guys in bulging lycra bodysuits were gay? Yost was alone on the set? ME has to wonder.

    At least the organization he's promoting can maybe be of help to some young people out there.



  13. 13

    I KNEW IT!
    I knew there was a reason why I liked him SO much! hahahahaha

    What is he complaining about? Hollywood has always pitched on both teams. Seriously, like they really "cared" he was gay. He's milking the massive gay movement right now…

    Boo hoo, he's full of it! And so are you Mario. You guys are making your case sooo weak.

    what a lovely man. i hope he has happiness for the rest of his life.



  16. 16

    Pray the gay away????? lol at these stupid hateful groups



  17. 17

    Re: mr.ghjunkie – you realize that none of them were in the suits right? Power Rangers is a cut up japanese show. All of the action scenes are to original Japanese Footage dubbed over. I also wonder why he was on the show so long if they were mean to him. He stayed on as long as tommy. heck I think he was on longer than that.



  18. 18

    So sad! By the way, is he related to Tinky Winky, the purple gay Teletubby?



  19. 19

    my favorite power ranger



  20. 20

    My favorite Power Ranger was the original red ranger, Jason. He was the true leader of that shit. Tommy was an asshole. The blue ranger was somehow always awesome inspite clearly being the nerd. He always seemed to kick ass. Go Billy the blue Gay power ranger.You still kick ass motherfucker.



  21. 21

    YOU ARE RIGHT, MARIO, HE DOESN'T DESERVE THAT KIND OF TREATMENT…BUT WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD DESERVES THAT KIND OF TREATMENT FROM YOU!!??? (ESPECIALLY YOUNG AND PRETTY GIRLS)

    YES, "yrwf", I agree! I look in on this site out of curiosity…like watching a train wreck…Perez, your agenda is especially annoying.



  22. 22

    ha atleast he stayed on longer then all the rest



  23. 23

    It makes me so sad to hear what he had to go through, he seems like the sweetest most caring guy.



  24. 24

    Of course I remember this show! They're actually rebroadcasting the first season of Power Rangers on ABC now on weekends… I watch it lol and Good for David, he deserves better :)



  25. 25

    Still so much hate… Even in the comments here…. So sad…



  26. 26

    wow, i loved power rangers when it first came on tv.. i was probly 8ish.. and to hear his story really made me cry.. its sad people can't be who they really are without ppl judging you for it. don't ever change who you are b/c of some self indulgent asshole who thinks he's better than you are.. gay or not.



  27. 27

    What the F is wrong with you fatso perez. Who the hell cares about this guy or what he had to go through. Are you kidding me. Most of it sounds made up for publicity. Once again fatso perez posting a story with absolutely nothing to back it up but what somebody said. Your the one who keeps throwing gayness into everyone's face. No one else cares if he's gay or not.



  28. 28

    Good for you , being in a money making role is hard to turn down , I watched this show everyday after school : ) Good luck David, dont take it personal your better then them.



  29. 29

    If I was him I would have used my powers and blew people the fuck up!

    "being apart of"? It's "being a part of" you uneducated lard ass.



  31. 31

    What is with the lame music in the background?



  32. 32

    aww i loved him he rocks!



  33. 33

    Nobody should have to go through this bullshit! People need to wake up and realize that WE ARE BORN this way and there is NOTHING that can be done to "CURE" us! I'm so sorry for all he's been through and what other LGBT people have and continue to go through! It's just so ridiculous! Live and Let Live,already!

    Re: Mad Dog – Asshole! Get a life and stay out of others lives!
    Karma's a bitch,you moron and it's gonna get YOU one of these days!

    Re: DragonSlayer – Attention whores,like you,make me sick! Go crawl back under your rock! UGH!



  36. 36

    he's my favorite now, i love the line, 'affirmative' he always did lol



  37. 37

    I feel so bad for him but glad he's out and talking about it. That's part of the healing process. He needs to stay strong and not worry about what others think. Never try and change who you are for anyone in any way. There is nothing wrong with being gay and that's coming from someone who is straight but is a major supporter of rights for all. I admire the man for all he's had to go through.



  38. 38

    Re: Mad Dog – A HUMAN BEING says that they wanted to kill themselves for people calling him that word and you go out of your way to post that? That is really sad.
    Oh and FYI to all of you anti-gay biggots….this blog…hold your breath…is run by a gay man!!!! I know shocking, but you probably don't that because why else would you go out of your way to come to this website all the time. That would just be really stupid.



  39. 39

    I was hopeing it would be Jason the red ranger but anyway I feel so sorry for him. That kind of shit is horrible. I wish him nothing but happinees in the futrue. Re: Mad Dog – you and those like you are a peice of shit. and you are what is wrong with the world and why there will never be peace on earth. you hate gays you hate jews im sure you hate blacks and arabs, asians, latins, mentally disabled well just everone. well fuck you you will get whats comming to you cause unlike you i have read the bible and your god dosen't like people that hate and distroy.



  40. 40

    I pretty much knew he was gay….

  41. Hun says – reply to this

    I almost started to cry when he was talking about "pray the gay away" and "trying to change himself" …. poor guy. sad. Congrats on changing your mind about yourself and accepting who you are. Best wishes Luv.

    Re: Snozberries – What is your position on Mario calling Will.I.Am a f***ing f*gg*t? i.e. "You're not a f***ing artist, you're a f***ing f*gg*t!" GLAAD was quick to censure him. Furthermore, he is disgustingly rude, vulgar and crass. I would request that you check out the recent posts about Michelle Rodriguez before you suggest that he has learned his lesson.

    haha, billy always looked like a 30 yr old high schooler. and gay.
