Jacob Haren is a big fan of Disney cartoons. He could also be a gay icon now.

“Can I be a gay icon yet?” he asked, tweeting a video of himself recreating Belle’s reaction to Gaston’s wedding proposal.

And the answer, according to the internet – including drag celebrities like Nina West and Jackie Cox – is yes.
