You might recall that a few months back there was a campaign to give Disney’s Frozen Princess Elsa a girlfriend in the film’s upcoming sequel.


Well, now fans are campaigning on Twitter to see another LGBT pairing on screen, by urging Marvel and Disney to #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend.

They’ve seen Steve Rogers' relationship with Bucky Barnes develop across three films now, and they’re of the opinion that there’s room for a natural progression.

But it’s not just about a character’s story for them – it’s about sending a positive message to young LGBTQ people.

#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend this would be the most iconic and beautiful thing and a great way to give the lgbt+ community representation

#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend b/c sexuality & romance is diverse and complicated, but MCU's interpritation of it had been shamfully stifling

And as they point out, the concept is no more bizarre than Steve kissing his dead girlfriend’s niece just days after her funeral. Love is love, after all. Let’s celebrate it.
