Fans of Captain America have taken to twitter to asked Marvel and Disney to give the superhero a boyfriend. The #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend hashtag trended on Twitter last night, not long after Frozen star Idina Menzel gave her support to the similar #GiveElsaAGirlfriend campaign.

Captain AmericaFans are asking Marvel to #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend.

The hashtag was first started by student Jess Salerno, who spoke to Metro Online about how the campaign took off on social media.

"I feel like it sucks that people in the LGBT community don't get the representation that they deserve and it would be so amazing for something like Captain America or Marvel to be able to portray that,” she explained.

"And maybe just let people know that it’s okay to be who you are. you know? You don’t have to be scared, especially to be able to have children grow up in that way, I feel like it would do amazing things for the future.”

So far on screen Captain America (played by Chris Evans) has had romances with both Peggy Carter and her niece Sharon Carter. One supporter tweeted: ’#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend because in what world is dating your dead girlfriends niece more acceptable than dating a guy?’

Another user added: ‘#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend so queer kids who feel weak can see a superhero who's strong and powerful being comfortable with who he is.'

But many fans of the superhero already know who they want him to fall in love with, his childhood best friend Bucky Barnes (played by Sebastian Stan).
