People are campaigning for Elsa to be Disney's first LGBTQ princess
Disney's 2013 film Frozen was one of their most successful releases of all time, and many people appreciated the fact the movie concentrated on a sisterly love story, rather than a romantic one.
The relationship between siblings Anna (Kristen Bell), and Elsa (Idina Menzel), was roundly praised by critics and viewers alike, but now it seems like people want to see a different kind of love story for Elsa.
We know that there will be a sequel to the blockbuster success that was Frozen, as Bell tweeted confirming the news earlier this year.

The film was already quite LGBT-friendly, starring Jonathan Groff as Kristoff and featuring a gay character called Oaken.
Many people in the LGBTQ community have also talked about how the film's main song, Let It Go, could be interpreted as being about the journey of coming out.
A campaign on Twitter has now kicked off to make Elsa the first LGBTQ Disney princess ever, in the second installment of the animated series.
#GiveElsaAGirlfriend hopes to encourage Disney animation to improve LGBT representation in its movies with its first gay princess.
#GiveElsaAGirlfriend because LGBT kids deserve to know that there is nothing wrong with them?????

#GiveElsaAGirlfriend because it would be a huge step towards queer kids feeling loved and accepted from a young age

Making a kids movie with a queer character won't make your kids gay it will teach them that love comes in many forms #GiveElsaAGirlfriend

#GiveElsaAGirlfriend because half of Frozen is one big metaphor for being in the closet, getting outed, and coming to terms with yourself...

A gay Disney princess would have helped me feel so much more normal when I was younger. Representation is important. #GiveElsaAGirlfriend
