1. Gina Rodriguez to play Rosa’s girlfriend on Brooklyn Nine-Nine? Ok so there’s been no official confirmation from the show, but the intertubes went wild when B99 star Terry Crews posted a now deleted photo of Jane the Virgin star Rodriguez on set. Fans have been dreaming of Rodriguez guesting as bisexual police officer Rosa’s gf, and it looks like we might just get to see that happen.

3. Let it go, girl! Will Frozen‘s Elsa find a princess to warm her heart? While this isn’t the first time we’ve heard about this possibility, Frozen 2‘s second co-director, Jennifer Lee, has now added her voice to the mix. In an interview with HuffPo, Lee says that conversations are always happening, and she lets Elsa’s character lead the way. To champion this idea, or share your thoughts, check out the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend hashtag started by activist Alexis Isabel. If it does indeed happen, and Elsa is revealed to be lesbian or bisexual, this would be a massive development in pop culture.
5. Finland gives same-sex couples a huge win. Now in Finland, a child can have two legally recognized mothers as soon as they are born. This amendment to the Maternity Act means that the child’s other mother, who did not give birth, no longer has to go through the long process of adoption.
