Chella Man Is the Hero TV Needs Right Now

The model, activist, and Titans actor is part of this year's #PRIDE25!


The way the LGBTQ+ community has been portrayed in popular culture has come a long, long way in recent years. Although there's still a lot of work to be done, so many creative queer folks have been making awesome and inclusive movies, music, TV shows, and more that better represents our lives and our stories, so in honor of Pride Month, we're taking the time to honor 25 of these inspiring people! This is the 2019 #PRIDE25!

Chella Man is set to steal the spotlight in the upcoming second season of DC Universe's live-action Teen Titans adaptation Titans. The Deaf, Chinese-American, trans model and activist will be taking on the role of Jericho, a powerul, mute superhero who uses sign language to communicate after his vocal cords were severed by assassins. This will be one of the first times in TV history where a trans person of color will be playing a superhero, and we can't wait to see what Chella Man brings to the role!

"As a trans, Deaf, Jewish person of color, I have always reminded myself of the power in my differences," he wrote on Instagram when the news of his Titans casting was first announced back in March. "It is a dream come true, now, as I will be able to showcase this power on the Titans."

Catch Chella Man when he makes his acting debut in Season 2 of Titans on DC Universe!
