Rantasmo tells you whose team he’d prefer to be on when it comes to Beauty and the Beast and the much-hyped “exclusively gay moment” in the live-action film.

Needs More Gay dissects the highs and lows of gay pop culture with the precision of a dull machete.

    GLAAD also sent out an email about tagging Team Lefou on social media when the movie opened. But my favorite part of this whole thing has following Alexis Loizon, the actor who played Stanley in the film and Gaston on stage, online. He’s totally into the Stanfou ship.

  2. Once Upon a Time has already done explicitly gay characters. It was not treated as “Hey, I’m the gay” but as people who happened to fall in love with someone of the same sex. There were stories of unrequited love and of love healing someone, both literally and metaphorically.

  3. Beast should have been a woman in this version.

  4. I’m honestly suprised Disney had the balls to try a tactic that backfired when Ghostbusters did it; get people complaining months before the movie actually came out by making a huge fuss about a minor unimportant detail in the press release that happened to sound like a political statement.

    Fortunately, this time it pretty much resulted in everyone but 2 countries saying, “That’s it? He sort of flirts with Gaston while singing the Gaston song and then dances with a guy?”

  5. Bucky and Pronk Oryx-Antlerson deserve more attention than they got, I feel like, just because if you *know their name* you know that they’re gay. They’re two different species but share the hyphenated last name.
