Russian Federation finally approved 'Beauty and the Beast, with a caveat

Beauty And The Beast, a film that depicts the blossoming relationship of a young woman imprisoned by a beastly creature, has recently drawn enormous controversy surrounding the sexuality of a secondary character.

Tell us your favorite character from the 1991 animated film! "The minimum age is 16+".

The 2013 legislation, which angered human rights activists and the worldwide gay community, describes homosexuality as "non-traditional sexual relations". "And in this case, our shared task is to not allow the release of this musical on the screen under any guise".

At the film's premiere, LeFou actor Josh Gad says, "There was nothing in the script that said 'LeFou is gay.'" Bill Condon adds, "I think [LeFou's sexuality] has been a little overstated".

Enter for a chance to win a family four pack of passes to attend the special 3D advance screening of Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST in St. Louis on March 14 at 7pm. And that's what has its payoff at the end, which I don't want to give away.

Josh Gad does damage control in an interview with People, describing LeFou's gay scene as "subtle but incredibly effective", and emphasizing the film's general "inclusiveness". The country removed homosexuality from a list of psychiatric disorders in 1999.

A Russian politician asks the minister of culture to ban Beauty and the Beast for promoting "gay propaganda".

There are several new songs that were written for the 2017 version of the film, but none of the original songs written for the Broadway show were used in the new movie.

LifeSiteNews' petition to Disney regarding the homosexual representation of LeFou in its Beauty and the Beast remake has gotten more than 100,000 signatures in the few days since its launching.
