Frozen fans petition Disney to give Elsa a girlfriend

Will Disney finally be ready to represent the LGBTI community with a lesbian princess?

Is Disney ready to represent the LGBTI community with a lesbian princess? Are they ready to show that "love is an open door" and when it comes to gay inequality we're ready "to let it go, let it gooooooooo"?
One Disney fan has created the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, and asked exactly that question.
The hashtag refers to Elsa, the ‘Let It Go' princess come queen from the smash hit 2013 film, Frozen, and the fact that she wants to see a lady love interest in the upcoming sequel, Frozen 2.
Alexis Isabel started the hashtag with a simple enough request, and it didn’t take long for others to respond to the call out for a progressive princess to join the Disney ranks.
A large majority of people are supportive of the movement for reasons ranging from normalising all kinds of love so LGBTI kids feels accepted, but also by way of potentially explaining to peers of kids with two mummies that that love is normal too.
Obviously, there were haters, because where there is talk of equality there will always be haters.
The fear is that introducing idea of same-sex relationships to children through the medium of film will actually "make them gay."
But it was summed up perfectly by Writing Writer who said -
"If a gay Disney princess can turn little girls gay then why didn't all those straight princesses turn me straight?"
