Blu shared about using his work to promote visibility and inclusion for the trans and LGBTQ+ community. He also teased some upcoming projects, including Trap House, and what he loves to geek out about! We might all need to plan a trip to Japan is all I’m saying!

On being a part of the most diverse and inclusive cast in Star Trek history

Blu: I’ve always been a really big champion of having as much diversity on screen as we do in our world. Going into this era of trek, where we have the most diverse show that we’ve ever had… I was extremely excited. Also nervous to be part of that representation. Very nervous. But ultimately, it was it was a really huge honor.

On playing their first male character since their transition in Trap House

Blu: It’s a lot of fun, it’s very action packed and I think the story is really beautiful. I really love the character that I got to play. This is you know, the first male character that I got to step into and I’m really excited about that.
