Disney Just Made Things So Awkward With Their First "Exclusively" Gay Character
But when I recollect, I can’t actually pinpoint out any openly gay characters created by Disney. Timon and Pumba in The Lion King? Just friends. Any of the seven dwarves? No, I was projecting. Shrek’s Pinocchio? Oh wait, that was Dreamworks. But the fact that I thought I could means that Disney could have slid LeFou — a Gaston loyalist who is secretly in love with him — into the story line without a huge announcement. And to be honest, it probably would have been better that way. I’m obviously not the only one who feels that way.
