5 Movies with Gay Characters That Were Screened in Malaysia

Beauty and the Beast may have gotten banned, but that doesn’t explain how these got through.

A side character named LeFou was homosexual enough for the whole movie to not get past the Malaysian Film Censorship Board.

Update: the board allowed the movie to be screened but with cuts, and Disney responded by pulling the movie entirely.

Update 2: the movie will be screened in Malaysia without cuts.

However, these major characters in other movies are confirmed gay, and were confirmed screened in Malaysian cinemas.

Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter series


Yes the headmaster of Hogwarts is homosexual, as confirmed by the author herself.

Alan Turing in The Imitation Game

Halfway in the movie we see Alan getting hitched with a woman. Maybe that led the censors to believe that he was straight deep down inside.

Magnus Bane in The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones


There was reportedly a small cut in the movie, but the rest of the movie was still screened.

Robert Frobisher in Cloud Atlas


“Is this man gay?” “Shut up, I’m still trying to understand the plot.”

Harry Bright in Mamma Mia!


But Donna was the first woman he ever loved! And also the last. Hint: watch all the way to the end of the movie.

Did any other homosexual movie characters get past the censors?
