Petition calls on Disney to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend in upcoming ‘Frozen’ sequelEntertainment News, Online Only, Section 4A, Top Highlights Thursday, May 5th, 2016
A Disney fan has started a Care2 petition urging Disney to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend in the upcoming sequel of the 2013 film Frozen.
The Care2 petition captures the support surrounding the viral hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, which was started by Twitter user Alexis Isabel on April 30. Julie Rodriguez, who who started the petition, writes, “I was a huge Disney princess fanatic as a child, and I still see almost every Disney movie that comes out. I’m also part of the LGBT community, and I would love to see queer girls depicted on screen, because I wasn’t able to see very many LGBT role models while growing up.”
Alexis Isabel agrees, stating on the petition, “Growing up, I never saw a princess fall in love with another princess — and neither have girls growing up right now. 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.”
