Frozen fans started a movement of sorts, requesting Disney to give Queen Elsa a girlfriend after it was revealed that the studio did not use any LGBT characters in their 2015 films at all.
Disney, Paramount and Warner Bros. all received failing grades on GLAAD’s annual LGBT report card, while Lionsgate, Sony, Universal and Fox received “Adequate” marks, reported Ace Showbiz.
Twitter users made their voices heard by using the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.
GLAAD, a media monitoring organisation founded by LGBT people, called on Disney to include gay characters in upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII.
“As sci-fi projects have the special opportunity to create unique worlds whose advanced societies can serve as a commentary on our own, the most obvious place where Disney could include LGBT characters is in the upcoming eighth Star Wars film,” the report said.
If a gay Disney princess will turn little girls gay how come the mermaid Disney princess didn't turn me into a mermaid? #GiveElsaAGirlfriend— Twitnter is Coming (@OhNoSheTwitnt) May 2, 2016

Because I want this:
Kid: so you have two mommies?
my kid: yes
Kid: so like Elsa & ___
my kid: yes
Kid: that's cool!
#GiveElsaAGirlfriend because 1 in 5 kids are queer, but only 1 in 10 feel safe enough to come out.— mia (@miaafame) May 1, 2016
Given that Frozen was one giant metaphor for the closet, to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend is just logical. More LGBT representation is a great idea.— Kenneth Sergienko (@KenSergienko) May 1, 2016
