With the phenomenal commercial success of the 2013 Disney motionpicture Frozen, "Let It Go," the song from the film, became ubiquitous acrossall media. Having trained in feminist studies and gender studies, however, Iresisted watching Frozen on the assumption that Disney's animated films can be problematic in their representations of gender, race, and ethnicity. Yet, inthe end, I surrendered, unable to ignore the fact that some perceive the film tobe queer, especially in its representation of the character of Princess Elsa.
