Watch This Shirtless Violinist Make ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Even Gayer Than You Thought Possible
If the live action Beauty and the Beast wasn’t queer enough for you, one shirtless violinist turned the time-old tale even gayer.
In this short film, Matthew “Shirtless Violinist” Olson plays the Beauty and the Beast theme on a violin, shirtless (as you’d expect) while cavorting and occasionally making out with a cute prince. There’s also a twirling Belle in drag. Alas, no Gaston.
“Rather than focusing on the Prince’s transformation from a beast, our version would ‘flip the script’ and portray Belle’s metamorphosis,” Olson wrote.
