Cada semana en Marvel's Hero Project , emisión exclusiva de  Disney + , sale a la luz la historia de un nuevo héroe joven que marca la diferencia en sus comunidades y en todo el mundo. Esta vez le tocó el turno a Rebekah.

El programa se centró en cómo Rebekah ayudó a hacer campaña por la educación inclusiva LGBT en Nueva Jersey, después de que la administración Trump retiró las protecciones para los estudiantes trans. Como parte del programa, Marvel estrenó el cómic "Mighty Rebekah", que está disponible de forma gratuita en la web.     

El cómic de la franquicia tiene un mensaje potenciador pro-LGBT, con la poderosa Rebekah ayudando a sus amigos después de que los fanáticos enojados arrojaron un ladrillo por la ventana con el mensaje "no perteneces aquí".

Rebekah quedó encantada con el cómic de la compañía, y le dijo a Marvel que su parte favorita era que "demostraba que los niños LGBTQ son iguales a los demás niños".

Today, this kid showed her strength once again. Today, she did something that was hard and scary. Today, she made herself proud.u2063 u2063 Today, Rebekah had her second surgical procedure to place a hormone blocking implant in her arm to prevent her from progressing farther into puberty. They removed the old one and put in a new one. This is one example of what medically appropriate, medically necessary, life-affirming, and often literally life-saving treatment looks like for a transgender child. She had the first procedure two years ago.u2063 (Swipe u27a1ufe0f to see little @therealrebekah) u2063 That is the face of a girl terrified of hospitals and needles, but more terrified of having to live life as someone she is not. That is the face of a girl feeling on top of the world, knowing her body wonu2019t betray her and sheu2019s one step closer to the woman she will grow up to be.u2063 u2063 Today, Iu2019m thankful for top notch medical facilities and physicians. Iu2019m thankful for ongoing and growing research and guidelines. Iu2019m thankful for health insurance that covered my kidu2019s medically necessary treatment. And Iu2019m extra thankful and proud to say that the insurance covering this procedure for my transgender daughter is provided to my husband through his employer... the church.u2063 u2063 With news of further discrimination out of the White House spreading and GOP lawmakers in multiples states trying to prohibit gender affirming, life saving care like this for minors, Iu2019m immensely grateful for my childu2019s medical care. EVERY kid deserves access to that care. We must fight those who want to prevent kids like her from living the lives they deserve. u2063 u2063 ALLIES, we need you. Pay attention. Speak up. Stop the spread of misinformation. This is not abuse. This is allowing my child to live her best life.u2063 u2063 #PostedWithPermission #thisiswhattranslookslike #transisbeautiful #protecttranskids #transhealthcare #myfaithdoesnotdiscriminate #supportmatters
