Okay, now that I’ve seen Frozen finally – I feel like I can now really contribute to the discussion here. I understand how the LGBT theme is interpreted here but at the heart of the story it’s about sisters and their unconditional love for each other.
So I can see where Adam and Eddie can go with introducing Elsa to the Once universe. I think the heart of her story will still be her relationship with her sister and like the movie, she may not have a love interest on the show.
But I don’t think that’s an “open door” to make the character of Elsa a lesbian. She didn’t have a love interest in the movie but also remember how her parents locked her away so she never really had a chance for any kind of romantic relationship with either sex.
She grew up in fear of hurting people around her because of her parents decision to lock her away.
I am however very interested to see how Elsa got her ice powers and how Adam and Eddie will deal with that. Frozen I feel didn’t really deal with aspect of her character too much.
I said this in another thread but thought it might be relevant here too;
I hope Anna is ok though. I really like her character as to me she symbolises the unconditional love that people should show their lgbtq family members after they come out (Anna never once – ever – questioned or judged Elsa after finding out about her powers. Something most lgbtq people can only dream of).
Showing that Anna hasn’t got a judgemental bone in her body when it comes to Elsa being a lesbian would work way better than showing she accepts her sister’s powers without hesitation, as powers have already been dealt with in ouat, and they’re not considered to be the makings of a ‘bad guy’ any more, since Emma (the saviour) has them.
However, homosexuality has not seriously been covered in ouat yet, giving the writers the perfect platform to show the audience just how unconditionally Anna loves Elsa. Though admittedly the downside of this would be that the EF would have to hold homophobic views/traditions in order to provide a contrast between Anna’s acceptance and everybody else’s disapproval.
In other words; because the possession of magical powers (in humans) has been shifted from ‘sign of the bad-guy’ to the ‘no big deal’ side Elsa’s struggle for acceptance as a magic-wielding royal will be too old-hat to be an interesting or engaging storyline for the new big-bad in season 4, because everyone already accepts that good guys can have magic too. On the other hand, Elsa can still have an acceptance storyline with her sexuality as the focus. This, as I’ve said above, would be the perfect way to showcase just how loving and accepting Anna is.

"there’s lesbians in it"
