Beauty and the Beast: The Lefou controversy

In the upcoming movie Beauty and the Beast, there is discussion about one of the characters being openly gay. The character everyone is buzzing about is Gaston’s chubby, fun-loving side kick, Lefou.

Beauty & The Beast review

The live-action “Beauty and the Beast” was released on March 17, 2017 and made over $170 million opening weekend. The movie pretty much follows the plot of Disney’s 1991 movie.

The bank of mom and dad

College. What an interesting time in a young person’s life. Are they an adult? Are they a kid? More-so, it is a middle ground of the two.

Why we all must begin to 'trust the process'

Why we all must begin to ‘trust the process’
