Twitter Campaign Asks ‘Frozen’ Producers to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend in Sequel
“I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine how iconic that would be.”
A new campaign sweeping Twitter is asking Disney to give Frozen’s Elsa a Princess Charming in the upcoming sequel.
It all started over the weekend when Twitter user Alexis Isabel Moncada wrote:
Then she followed up with another tweet with #GiveElsaAGirlfriend and it went totally viral.
Many fans expressed the same views, retweeting Moncada’s original tweet over 1,700 times and posting their own #GiveElsaAGirlfriend support. Here’s a just a few:
Moncada wrote an article for MTV.com on Tuesday, explaining why she started the campaign. “The entertainment industry has given us girls who have fallen in love with beasts, ogres who fall for humans, and even grown women who love bees. But we’ve never been able to see the purity in a queer relationship.”
She added that “many in the LGBT community view Frozen as a metaphor for the experience of coming out and accepting who you are. Yet Elsa, the film’s protagonist, will probably end up with a male prince or king in the upcoming Frozen sequel.”
Frozen 2, which is currently in production, is slated to be released before 2018. Let’s see if this works.
