Disney just confirmed that they will have their first "Exclusively gay moment" in the upcoming live action version of Beauty and The Beast! The character who is gay? Gaston's sidekick Lefou! When talking about the scene and character's back story the director had this to say:
“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” reveals Condon.
“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.”
I'm personally so hyped for this! It seems like it will be a silly moment, but hey it's still there. Representation makes a difference guys! Can't wait to see this movie. What do you all think?? Check out a clip of their famous song in the live action film below!
