We thought that Disney had proven their wokeness before when announcing that Elsa would be a lesbian in Frozen 2, but they are surely outdoing themselves with a bit of leaked information about the upcoming sequel. A Disney insider told NPC Daily that the producers are including a nod to the LGBTQ community by spotlighting an openly transgender character in Frozen 2!
I can’t give too much away but let’s just say the LGBTQ community will absolutely LOVE Frozen 2. One of the semi-main characters will be openly transgender and it will not affect the plot at all. It will be one step closer to inclusion.

That, combined with this interesting tweet from Disney hinting at an audience regardless of gender will enjoy the movie:
The only thing that isn’t clear is which character will be opening transgender. We could most likely rule out Elsa since it’s already confirmed that she’s a lesbian in Frozen 2. That still leaves Anna, Olaf, Sven and Kristof. Though, those are more main characters and not semi-main characters, we could possibly rule them out too – but not off the table completely! This would be the first mention of LGBTQ individuals in a Disney movie since their announcement of Alex Is, the first transgender Disney princes.
How great would it be if Elsa’s girlfriend was in fact a transgender female and that’s how they give homage to the transgender community! One can only hope.
Keep an eye out this November 22nd for the release of Frozen 2 and let us know if you spot the transgender character!
