Beauty and the Beast' Shows That LGBTQ Characters Are Good for Business

Beauty and the Beast' Shows That LGBTQ Characters Are Good for Business 
- The film’s lesson is just as salient today as it was 25 years ago when the animated version was released: When we get stuck on the skin-deep traits that divide us, we miss out on the chance to know people who can shape and change our lives. When we’re open-minded and inclusive, we have a much easier time finding the adventure, joy, and love we seek.
This version of the film drives that point home for the LGBTQ community with director Bill Condon announcing a “gay moment” for one of its characters, LeFou (Josh Gad). LeFou’s happy ending may be a small moment in the film, but it’s a huge leap forward for the film industry, and for inclusion and acceptance for all LGBTQ people. That’s why we at GLAAD asked our supporters to join #TeamLeFou and share photos of their families seeing the film on opening weekend.
