'Frozen' Fans Urge Disney to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend After Studio Fails GLAAD's LGBT Report Card

Fans are campaigning to give Queen Elsa a girlfriend as GLAAD's report card showed that Disney did not use any LGBT characters in their 2015 films at all.

AceShowbiz - "Frozen (2013)" fans are urging Disney to give Queen Elsa a girlfriend after the studio failed GLAAD's annual LGBT report card. The studio did not use any LGBT characters in their 2015 films at all. Twitter users are using the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.

Some people said they saw LGBT representation when they were kids and wanted their children to know about that too. Singer Manika also showed her support for the campaign, writing, "#GiveElsaAGirlfriend yes please I volunteer!"

Some people asked Disney to create a new LGBT character instead of Elsa.

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. The report said, "As recent successful animated films and TV programs have shown (Oscar-nominated ParaNorman, Cartoon Network's Steven Universe), LGBT people appearing in 'all-ages' programming - animated or not - is not the impossible notion it once was. LGBT people are already part of families and communities around the world, and films of all genres should reflect that."

The group 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.

"2015's 'The Force Awakens' has introduced a new and diverse central trio, which allows the creators opportunity to tell fresh stories as they develop their backstory," it added, "Recent official novels in the franchise featured lesbian and gay characters that could also be easily written in to the story."
