This Disney Movie Could Be the First to Feature a Lesbian Couple
Disney may not have given Frozen’s Elsa a girlfriend, but it may have just made history with its latest Pixar collaboration. Following the release of the Finding Dory trailer, Twitter fans were going nuts with speculation that they may have just seen the first lesbian couple (now also available in emoji form) in a Disney film, well, ever.
In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, two females, seemingly pushing a stroller together, can be seen near the three-minute mark of the trailer, and though short, it was enough to get people totally geeked.
Check out a snippet of the excitement below:

Just a few days from National Pride Month (do you have your rainbow gear ready?), the film wouldn’t be the first to show a gay couple (Frozen is said to have a gay character in kiosk owner Oaken), but it would be the first to show a family headed by two women.
While some feel the declaration is a bit premature, pointing out that the two ladies could simply be friends or even two strangers simply passing by, we’re inclined to agree with the original conclusion, especially considering that the movie’s main voice, Ellen DeGeneres, is such a leader in the LGBTQ community (she even has her own lifestyle brand!).
See the trailer in its entirety to judge for yourself:
