Calls for Elsa to be Disney studio’s first LGBT princess in the film’s sequel Frozen 2.

The hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend has gone viral, reports 9 News.

Supporters say this could be a positive step towards normalising same-sex relationships and could help young people accept and understand their sexuality.

Disney already promotes and normalises the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community through its show “Once Upon a Time”, which incorporates live-action iterations of classic Disney animated characters, introducing several gay characters into its storylines.

If social media and people power have anything to do with it, the studio could well make history.

Do you stand behind this campaign?

  • Do we really need this for ones so young? A bit age inappropriate I think. Maybe for older kids in different movies

  • I don’t have a problem with LGBT characters in kids shows, but this somehow feels contrived.

  • i do not even think this is appropriate! It is a cartoon!


    • Agreed! These are young children, sexuality shouldn’t be promoted in anyway when they are so young.

  • Our young children are just that – children. Frozen is animation, not a reality show. Why does everybody have to find faults….if there are any and not imagined.

  • I don’t think its appropriate. I certainly don’t want to explain to my 3.5yo daughter about LGBT just yet. She doesn’t have the mental capacity to understand. Can we just let kids be kids. They will learn these things in time.

  • *sigh* Honestly can we just stop all this stupidness?
    When i was a kid I wanted to be a princess. I had brothers and I thought that some days it would be handy to have a penis…especially on road trips when you had to stop to pee in the bush.
    When I grew up did I go seek out a sex change…No because when i told my Mum i wanted a Penis I was speaking from a practical stand point and not one where I was confused over if I was male or female.
    Did dressing up and pretending to be a Princess and dreaming of marrying a Prince have any impact on my life? No. What about that dolls I played with? Again no. I did become a mother but the odds of that happening would have been fairly high no matter if I had played with dolls or not.

    Rather then worrying about creating such Disney characters wouldnt it be better if we focused more on removing the strong violence, language and sex from movies and music videos that our kids are exposed to???

  • I get the reason behind it…..but can’t we just let kids be kids? Do we really have to promote adult themes in children’s movies? I think that’s maybe a step too far!

  • I don’t understand the campaign – why not make a completely new character that champions this cause from the outset.


    • I agree – this is a much better idea.

  • I totally love this idea. People ask why and the answer is because there are not realistic depictions of the diversity of human relationships in popular culture and this distorts people’s understanding and contributes to prejudices.

  • I don\’t see why not. I mean sailor moon had a gay character and my generation never even batted an eyelid. It was done tastefully. It does need to add to the story however otherwise it\’s not worth it

  • I agree with mom169007. I couldn’t have said it better.

  • Why do we feel the need to stick labels on everything? Can’t they just be fictional characters with whatever mysterious background story they want? It’s not kids wanting to know their favourite character’s sexual preferences and it doesn’t really add to the story so why is it needed?


    • I agree with your comment. Children see the story, adults want the labels.
