In 2013, Disney released "Frozen."

Since "Frozen" ended with Anna and Kristof getting their reciprocal crushes on, fans have been clamoring to ship Queen Elsa with ... someone in the inevitable sequel.

With "Frozen 2" officially in the works now, fans on Twitter came up with brilliant idea: Not only should Elsa finally get a love interest in the new movie, that love interest should be a woman.

The tweet that started it all was simple enough:


But pretty soon, fans started taking it seriously.


Some LGBT fans chimed in to say how much they would have loved to see themselves represented on screen as kids.


A few noted that a gay Disney princess could not only help LGBT kids feel accepted — it could help them feel empowered to come out.


Others pointed out that giving Elsa a female partner affirms the movie's message ... by quoting the movie itself:


Though Elsa makes it through "Frozen" without a romantic side-quest (and hey, that's cool too!) ... giving her a same-gender love interest totally works.

Despite that whole flee-the-kingdom-after-causing-endless-winter mix-up, Elsa is queen of Arendelle now, which means she's free to choose whoever the heck she wants.

And ... let's face it: "Let it Go" is already, like, the most obvious coming out anthem of all time (so obvious that Diana Ross' "I'm Coming Out" is now in second place).

More importantly, it would be a huge boost for LGBT kids and a historic moment for "Disney."

While the company has given its iconic princess characters female partners in its more adult properties, giving Queen Elsa a co-queen — and treating it like it's no big deal — lets young viewers know that it's not only OK to love whoever you love, you can do so and still be a fierce, capable leader.

It would certainly get many fans lining up for "Frozen 2" a lot sooner.

The first nonstraight Disney princess? A move that would mean so much to so many? Hard not to root for.

What do you say, "Disney?" Let's build this particular snowman, eh?

The dangerous duo was detained by the police, then released back into Wellington Harbour.

According to LAist, since 2000, renter incomes have decreased by 3 percent while rents have gone up 32 percent.

While the city has launched a $100 million-per-year program to help the problem, rapper, entrepreneur, and actor Jaden Smith has found his own way of responding to the crisis: love.
