There Are Few Things I Want More Than For Elsa to be Gay
World peace would be nice and all, but I want Disney to use their power and clout to make Elsa gay in Frozen 2. I’ve written about this before, but there’s a new Frozen 2 trailer that doesn’t contradict these hopes and dreams for the world.
I mean, come on. Let it happen. I fully respect the idea that Elsa doesn’t need a love interest. But everybody loves a good romance. And Elsa should be gay. I want Disney to make it happen. I want Disney to use their massive entertainment empire to stare back into the eyes of every bigot and religious nutjob out there and tell them: Let it go.
Also, magical flames in Frozen 2? Surely there’s an awesome fire-magic lady out there to partner up with Elsa’s ice-magic.
And surely we can note that the trailer is being intentionally vague about the origins of that magic fire and what lies in the enchanted forest. Love interests and romance are a big part of Disney movies, but none of the trailers so far even hint at such a thing for Elsa. So either Disney isn’t going to go down that road for arguably their most popular princess in years…or they’re keeping it a secret!
I’m just gonna hold on hope for awhile.
