Disney's new Beauty and the Beast movie features "exclusively gay moment."
The makers of Disney's new Beauty and the Beast movie have included a "gay character and love scene" between Gaston and his male sidekick, LeFou, according to the BBC. The movie hits theaters March 17.
"LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He's confused about what he wants," director Bill Condon told Attitude magazine. "It's somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And [LeFou] makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that’s what has its payoff at the end, which I don't want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie."
All of my childhood and most of my life Disney has been synonymous with the whole idea of "family friendly." Unfortunately, no family can take the Disney brand for granted any more.
