A viral social media campaign is calling on Disney to make Elsa, the princess from the popular 2013 animated children’s movie “Frozen,” a lesbian by giving her a girlfriend in the movie’s sequel.
The hashtag campaign #GiveElsaAGirlfriend was first started when a 17-year-old activist from Florida named Alexis Isabel Moncada wrote on Twitter last Saturday, “I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine how iconic that would be.”
Moncada added in another tweet: “Dear @Disney, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.”
Following Moncada’s tweets, many others chimed in on social media with their thoughts on why Disney should give Elsa a girlfriend in the movie’s sequel, which won’t be released for another few years.
One Twitter user, known by the handle @FlowerPrinceDan, tweeted Thursday that Disney should give Elsa a girlfriend because he feels children are being overexposed to straight princesses and straight princes in kids’ movies.
There aren’t any queer characters in kids’ movies or shows, so they only get to see straight characters,” @FlowerPrinceDan’s tweet states.
On Wednesday, the Twitter user @xharryandniall tweeted a picture that argues: “Everybody wants Elsa to have a girlfriend in “Frozen 2.”
“#GiveElsaAGirlfriend little kids need to learn young there is absolutely nothing wrong with being gay,” the tweet asserted.
Twitter user known as Haley Grace argued that Disney should make Elsa a lesbian because it would help children who might be struggling with their sexual orientation. She further claimed it would defy the notion that she feels is portrayed in many Disney movies that the princesses “need a man.”
Although many tweeted in support of giving Elsa a girlfriend, others Twitter users threatened to boycott Disney if they did such a thing.
“I’ll boycott Disney. #GiveElsaAGirlfriend is pissin me off,” a Twitter user named Kahlia wrote. “It’s nasty. She doesn’t need a man or a woman. She is strong and confidant.”
“This is aimed at 1-10 years old,” Kahlia wrote. “Like seriously? ! I know it’s for everyone as its family but come on. I’m not letting my siblings see it if Disney gives in.”
A concerned father named Christopher weighed in Tuesday, tweeting that he would not allow his kids to see the movie if Elsa is made to be a lesbian.
“#GiveElsaAGirlfriend I would not allow my daughters to watch the film,” Christopher wrote. “Not anti-gay. I don’t want Hollywood explaining sex to my kids.”
