Disney Goes Gay and Takes Kids With Them!!
As you may have heard, Disney aired its first same-sex kiss recently on the episode of a Disney Channel XD show “Stars vs. Forces of Evil.” The episode featured a scene at a boy band concert where several people, including same sex couples, kiss on cue with the music.
Now its forthcoming cinematic remake of Beauty and the Beast (set to be released on March 17) will feature a gay subplot. In the movie, Belle’s suitor Gaston has a male admirer via the new characterization of his manservant LeFou.
“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” director Bill Condon said.
“He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh (the LeFou actor) makes something really subtle and delicious out of it.”
