Fans have taken to social media to petition for Disney to give “Frozen’s” lead character Princess Elsa a female love interest in the film’s sequel.
The hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend began trending on Monday as many Twitter users voiced their support for a gay character in the Disney movie.
#GiveElsaAGirlfriend because LGBT kids deserve to know that there is nothing wrong with them

I absolutely adore the idea of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend . Kids need to know that love comes in different varieties & it’s okay to be who you are

However, not everyone was supportive of the idea.
World has gone PC mad. What’s it even matter? My 2 year old niece (target audience) won’t know the difference or care.#GiveElsaAGirlfriend

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

If Disney were to create a lesbian character for “Frozen,” it would not be the first time a Disney character has been gay.
A recent episode of “Once Upton a Time” on ABC featured a kiss between Ruby and the “Wizard of Oz’s” Dorothy.
Disney announced in March there would be a sequel to their hit animated film “Frozen” but the studio has yet to announce a release date.
