4 Fairy Tales With Gay Links

Snow White and the Huntsman is the latest in a series of fairy tales on the big screen that has something gay about it (in a six-degrees-of-Kevin-Bacon way).

Alice in Wonderland

This 3D Disney blockbuster makes Wonderland look as queer as we all expected, with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska (who played the daughter of lesbians in The Kids Are Alright) as a decidedly independent and feminist Alice trying to figure the damn place out. There are real gays behind the scenes too in this Tim Burton reimagining of the classic: Out actor Stephen Fry voices the Cheshire Cat while Matt Lucas inhabits Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Oh, and the Red Queen is played by Helena Bonham Carter, who isn't a lesbian but is so popular with queer girls that there's a petition going around to encourage her to play a lesbian on-screen soon.
