star Idina Menzel fully supports the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend Twitter campaign. The actress, who voices the lead character of Elsa in the Disney hit movie, told ET how she feels about the online campaign on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet Sunday night in Las Vegas. “I think it’s great,” Menzel said. “Disney’s just gotta contend with that. I’ll let them figure that out.”
The online petition started last month when a teenage activist named Alexis Isabel Moncada tweeted, “I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine, how iconic that would be. Dear @Disney, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.”
Moncada, the founder of Feminist Culture said:
“Growing up, I never saw a princess fall in love with another princess — and neither have girls growing up right now. The entertainment industry has given us girls who have fallen in love with beasts, ogres who fall for humans, and even grown women who love bees. But we’ve never been able to see the purity in a queer relationship.”
is currently in development but the release date has not been announced. Disney has yet to comment on the campaign but with support from the lead actress, the Walt Disney Company may soon reveal their first LGBTQ animated princess.
