There may be queer representation in the live-action Beauty and the Beast. As frustrated as I am with this obsession to make live-action version of animation, with an implication that somehow animation is subordinate to live-action, I can appreciate some work by Disney to fix gaps in the stories and characters of earlier works. Given the tone of this article, however, I fear this is baiting viewers or risks mocking persons on the basis of their sexuality.
