Characters you didn't realise were gay in these movies

Writer: Naseem Randhawa

Why is Josh Gad's LeFou as a gay character in the upcoming "Beauty and the Beast" such a big deal? Was it because director Bill Condon's well-meaning announcement of the live-action adaptation giving the character an "exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie" created an unnecessary backlash, which probably would have not happen did he not say anything and let audiences watch it for themselves? Like these films below that somehow made it to our screens with one or more (obvious or not) LGBTQ characters. Check them out below to see if you had even realised it!



"Frozen" (2013), Oaken.

Did you notice a gay character in "Frozen" or were you too busy singing along to the film? When Oaken from "Wandering Oaken's Trading Post and Sauna" is trying to sell Kristoff tons of things, he says "Hello, family!" and we get a glimpse of a bunch of kids and a man (implied to be his husband) in the other room.




"Zootopia" (2016), Bucky and Pronk.

"Zootopia" may be known for cleverly embedding important racial issues into their story, but did you know that Judy's neighbours, Bucky and Pronk are a married antelope couple sharing the last name Oryx-Antlerson? Thus making the film also promote marriage equality in a subtle way too.
