An uber popular Twitter campaign has Disney fans asking producers to variegate the Disney princesses even further, this time calling for a lesbian Princess Elsa in theFrozen sequel.

"I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine how iconic that would be,"tweeted Alexis Isabel Moncada.

"Dear @Disney, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend," continued Moncada. Her later tweet has been retweeted in excess of 17 hundred times.

"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," reasonedMoncada.

Disney, which has made a concerted effort to vary the races of its Disney princesses, now has a choice to make as it relates to the sexual preferences of the princess in one of its most powerful vehicles.

Achieving an astounding $1.3 billion in global box office revenue,Frozen is the highest grossing animated film of all time, the ninth highest grossing film of all time, and the third highest grossing original film of all time. It also won many awards, including two Academy Awards and two Grammy Awards.

An animated short sequel to the film was released by Disney in March, 2015, the sexuality of the Elsa character unchanged, but this was before the major push to see a lesbian Elsa. On Mar. 12, 2015, the feature length sequel to the film was announced.

"Many in the LGBT community view Frozen as a metaphor for the experience of coming out and accepting who you are. Yet Elsa, the film's protagonist, will probably end up with a male prince or king in the upcoming Frozen sequel," reasoned Moncada.
