The movement for gay rights has quickly covered the nation as it all began last year when gay marriage was legalized. As America, and the world at large, continue moving towards accomplishing more and more social achievements for equality, it’s no surprise these changes will begin to affect everything throughout our lives. Fans of the first Frozen movie have even made a rally outcry for Disney to now give Elsa a female love interest in the sequel.

The outcry largely began on social media from fans demanding Elsa be given a new and LGBT friendly relationship in the sequel planned for the hit film. The movement began this past Monday and has rapidly spread in gaining support. As LGBT has become increasingly accepted, many are much more comfortable now with the thought of an LGBT character than ever before.

The call for a gay character in the Disney movie has also been accompanied with the hastag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend. The calling most likely began in support of GLAAD recently asking that Star Wars include their own gay character. Even Marvel directors Anthony and Joe Russo have breached the subject of including LGBT characters into their universe. Studios everywhere are now coming under scrutiny about the possibilities for gay or gay supportive characters and it’s becoming more likely by the day that it will actually happen.

Many studios have responded positively to the wants of fans everywhere. Producers of Star Wars indicate they would have no qualms of any of the new film’s characters being gay, Even Luke Skywalker himself might take a stride on the GLAAD side of the force. Fans on twitter have tweeted continuously ever since the movement began and it doesn’t seem like the ideas support will die down anytime soon.

Some of the tweets that have been said are;

“I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine how iconic that would be”

#GiveElsaAGirlfriend because LGBT kids deserve to know that there is nothing wrong with them”

#GiveElsaAGirlfriend positive queer role models are needed from a young age; early exposure leads to better understanding/acceptance.”

World has gone PC mad. What’s it even matter? My 2 year old niece (target audience) won’t know the difference or care.

that kind of stuff belongs nowhere near a children’s movie and would be incredibly manipulative on a child’s mind.

Producers of the original film have responded to fans and seem just as open minded to the concept as any. Producer Chris Buck last year said, “I think we’re very aware of what is happening in society. I don’t think any of us take [them] lightly, even though they can be very funny and entertaining, the messages that our movies have and the influence they can have on young people. When the kids [watch] them, they watch them over and over again, and if we don’t have a decent message in there, I think we’ve missed an opportunity.”

While it’s not yet clear if LGBT will be one of the issues addressed in Frozen 2, it’s no doubt fans aren’t going to let this go anytime soon and are even more anxious for the sequel now than they were before. What do you think? Should Elsa have a girlfriend or should she have Jack Frost instead? Let us know!
