One character has a revolutionary coming-out scene in a new episode of the beloved Quantum Leap series, which continues the original show that started in 1989.

Actress and trans activist Shakina Nayfack (Difficult People, Connecting) wrote and directed a powerful episode about a character named Dean. 

“A cursed treasure hunt draws Ben to Mexico in 1953, putting him between two estranged siblings struggling with their late father’s legacy. As they navigate a series of lethal obstacles, Ben finds the real challenge lies in repairing this broken family’s bond,” reads the official logline.

In the exclusive clip, we meet Dean (Wilder Yari), one of the siblings, and witness a grand moment in their journey. 

“It is a bandage, but that’s not why I wear it,” they tell their sibling while showing their binded chest.

“Wow. A trans masculine in the 50s?”

“Isn’t it dangerous though? Binding with elastic bandages?”

“Good eye. But there weren’t exactly a lot of options back then.”
