Elsa was probably born a different person, having powers that made her an odd one out, were not understood, made her parents even to lock her in. Elsa breaks free and doing so the somewhat closed up figure (body language) turns into a confident, sexy young woman while singing a song of empowerment. When you listen to the lyrics as a queer person that is the song we all could sing, some have in their lives already, Elsa is like one of us. Of course can take it for any kind of empowering like a feminst one as well, but Elsa is a kind of archetype character queer people relate to, and especially queer women. We’re used to find relatable character more by subtext, in indirect ways and not that much as openly queer character.
I heard the argument that Elsa was a lesbian before I ever saw Frozen (took me forever to see it). So I went in hearing all the things people said, but I definitely agree that Elsa being a lesbian on ONCE would make a lot of sense given the subtext of Frozen. Her message of “conceal, don’t feel, put on show” can–yes–extend to multiple social issues, but after talking with you guys for so many pages now, I am going to be really disappointed if they ignore Elsa’s sexuality.
