Gay Moment Promised in New Beauty and the Beast Film

Beauty and the Beast - Josh Gad

Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, due on March 17, will feature a watershed moment for the studio: an “exclusively gay moment” for the character of LeFou, according to director Bill Condon.

Attitude reports:

While the reimagined romantic classic, featuring Emma Watson and former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens, might seem like the ultimate celebration of heterosexual love, it’s actually harbouring a treasure trove of gay secrets – and is set to make history with Disney’s first ever “exclusively gay moment” on film.

…Played by US actor Josh Gad, the character of LeFou serves as the sidekick to the film’s primary antagonist Gaston (Luke Evans), and is set to feature in a small but significant subplot of his own when it comes to his sexuality.
