The director of the much-anticipated Disney live action version of Beauty and the Beast has proudly revealed the the movie will feature Disney’s first-ever “exclusively gay moment.”
The “gay” moment involves character Lefou, the sidekick of villain Gaston, played by actor Josh Gad.
“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” director Bill Condon said this week. “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.”
Gad has confirmed the “gay moment” in the movie involving his character, tweeting today that he is “beyond proud of this.”
This comes days after The Disney Channel aired a same-sex kiss on one of its shows.
In recent years Disney has come under increasing pressure from LGBT activists to promote their agenda in their kids films, including a campaign to make Elsa from “Frozen” a lesbian.
With the highly-public announcement that Beauty and the Beast will include a explicitly “gay” moment, Disney appears to have caved to this pressure.
