I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine how iconic that would be— Alexis Isabel (@lexi4prez) May 1, 2016
Then everyone did.
Since Sunday, when 17-year-old Alexis Isabel Moncada first tweeted her musings about an LGBT-inclusive plot line for Disney's Frozen 2, the sequel to the 2013 blockbuster hit, the teenager's creative hashtag has been shared online thousands of times. Some Twitter users even included illustrations of what the romance might look like.
#GiveElsaAGirlfriend because LGBT kids deserve to know that there is nothing wrong with them?????— jeffrey marsh (@thejeffreymarsh) May 1, 2016
#GiveElsaAGirlfriend because it would be a huge step towards queer kids feeling loved and accepted from a young age— your gay is showing? (@GIRLSKISSGlRLS) May 1, 2016
If I'd seen a queer female in a Disney film, I wouldn't have felt so alone when I was younger struggling w/ coming out. #GiveElsaAGirlfriend— Mary Patterson (@MaryIPatterson) May 1, 2016
I absolutely adore the idea of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend . Kids need to know that love comes in different varieties & it's okay to be who you are— Lann? (@LanaxNicole3) May 1, 2016
When Frozen first debuted in theaters, fans theorized that the underlying plot points promoted inclusion and many adopted the movie's hit song, "Let it Go," as a gay anthem permitting self-acceptance.
Given that Frozen was one giant metaphor for the closet, to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend is just logical. More LGBT representation is a great idea.— Kenneth Sergienko (@KenSergienko) May 1, 2016
ABC, which is owned by the Disney-ABC Television Group, already features inclusive representation of famous Disney characters on the show "Once Upon A Time."
Disney has yet to respond to Moncada's now viral Twitter campaign, but she said online that even if the company can't give Elsa a female love interest, she hopes to see more LGBT characters in future movies.
