Beauty and the Beast is making history! The live-action remake will be the 1st Disney movie to feature an openly gay character, Mashable reports! Director Bill Condon recently gave an LGBT magazine the exclusive!
“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” he told Attitude, revealing the character.
He added, “He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh 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.”
