In the movie Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson, LeFou is exploring his sexuality. Daily Mail reports that the director Bill Condon said, “LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston” in an interview with Attitude magazine.
He continues to say that LeFou is unsure about what he wants. The character will be played by Josh Gad, who is formerly known as Olaf from Frozen. Condon says, “The studio is sending a message that this is normal and natural. This is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it’s still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be gay.”
Directors of Disney Pixar movies are even hinting that there will be an LGBT princess for the very first time.
Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon said her organization is committed to LGBT inclusivity. She told NBC Out backstage that she’s grown up actually knowing gay WWE superstars.
McMahon recalled wrestling legend, Pat Paterson who was the first “WWE Intercontinental Champion” who released his book called Accepted. The book is about his life as a gay wrestler and how he hid his true self in the beginning of his career.
NBC News says that GLAAD has come in and given tutorials on using the right words and why that matters. “LGBT characters will absolutely be integrated into the WWE programming” per McMahon.
