I admit I liked the live action version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. However the character of Lefou as being the first gay character in a Disney movie was lame. I wasn’t expecting much and I was still disappointed in that respects. Fortunately there is a slight remedy to this. Violinist Matthew Olson made the video below with a beautiful rendition of the Beauty and the Beast song. He is accompanied with his boyfriend Paul Castle as Bello.
The song starts out with Paul in drag approaching Matthew, unsure if he likes women or men. When Paul returns later in his own clothing, Matthew still accepts him. It’s quite nice and beautiful.
