Disney to feature their first openly gay character in a movie

March 3rd, 2017 by bash Comments

The upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast will feature the first ever openly gay character in a Disney.

In a recent interview, director Bill Condon confirmed that Josh Gad’s characer, LeFou (the sidekick to villainous Gaston), will have what he calls an “exclusively gay moment” in the film.

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,” Condon said. “It’s somebody who’s just realising that he has these feelings. Josh [Gad] makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that’s what has its pay-off at the end, which I don’t want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.

Beauty and the Beast opens in cinemas on March 17.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
