Jacob Haren is a big fan of Disney cartoons. He could also be a gay icon now.
Stuck under lockdown orders, LGBTQ people have found creative ways to pass the time, but Haren’s Beauty and the Beast recreation may be the best one yet.
“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.
Best of all? He says it took him about half an hour and it was just a plug for his YouTube watch party of the movie.
I adore @jacobdharen !! He can also sing circles around me!!
