- Today In I knew this already but FUCK YEAH anyway news: Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast will feature the House of Mouse's first ever canonically-gay character. Turns out those of us who are fans of the animated movie were totally right: LeFou's "Gaston" song was 100% a love song. Well, duh. Side note: conservatives are super pissed about LeFou being gay, so I am planning on seeing this movie about five times at the theater. I suggest you do the same.

Today's critical rolls: Who else in Disney animated history is actually gay (or bi, or whatever) in your heart, but needs to be revealed as such in the live action version? Disney is making live action versions of like everything now, so your head cannon could come true!
