Does this 'Finding Dory' trailer feature the first lesbian Disney-Pixar couple?

ZOMG. Not long after #GiveElseAGirlfriend became a thing, we may finally have our first gay Disney-Pixar couple.

A new trailer for Finding Dory, which stars LGBT hero Ellen DeGeneres, shows a toddler dropping her sippy cup after being knocked over by a baby stroller. One of the two women passing by picks up the cup.

Okay, so it’s not concrete evidence, but it would be pretty cool if the first Disney movie to show a gay couple was a film starring DeGeneres.

Wrote one logical Twitter user, “People are boycotting Disney because they show a lesbian couple in the Finding Dory trailer… Do they not know who voices Dory?!?”

DeGeneres famously came out as gay in 1997, when it was a much harder thing to do. Finding Dory comes out on June 17.

Check out the video below and pay attention at the 1:07 mark.
