Disney feature first ‘exclusively gay moment’ in new film

Disney has confirmed that they are going to feature their first gay character and love scene,  in the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

In the new take on the classic film, LeFou tries to come to terms with his feelings for Gaston.

Disney are calling it their first ever ‘exclusively gay moment’ on film.

Speaking with Attitude Magazine , director Bill Condon suggests that LeFou’s new side-plot is ground breaking for LGBT visibility on screen.

He said:

It’s somebody who’s just realising that he has these feelings. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it.

And that’s what has its pay-off at the end, which I don’t want to give away.

But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.



The film has been greatly anticipated, with Emma Watson, taking on the role of Belle.

The cast also includes: Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Kevin Kline and Stanley Tucci.
