Happy Pride Month!!! We know we always tell you all to be yourselves, but we also know that that can be hard. We also know that sometimes you need to hear that sort of encouragement from people you know a little better than us. So, we asked a few friends of ours to help out, and they had A LOT to say!!!
This is the first of our Pride Month videos!!! Stay tuned for more!!!
“People have called me homophobic for headcanoning Elsa as Asexual, and that is, quite frankly, laughable. There’s absolutely nothing hinting to her canon sexuality one way or another. If you can hc her as a lesbian, why can’t I hc her as Ace?”
“I think Hans being the villain is more important than people realize. I see so many young women falling for good-looking guys that treat them horribly, and I hope that Hans’ actions toward Anna, even subconsciously, teaches girls that abuse of any sort has no place in real love. That’s also why I’m disturbed by people trying to validate Hans’ actions, or give him some redemption.”
You: LaFou shouldn’t be gay !!!! It’s offensive !!!!!
Me, an intellectual: It’s not the best start but it’s a start. Disney is opening up. With Frozen showing you don’t need a prince to Moana solving her problems with love and compassion rather than violence. Disney has come a long way from their rough beginnings and making LaFou gay is unlocking the door to a whole world of possible LGBT themes in future movies. They’re finally seeing that people are people no matter who they love or what color their skin is. It’s beautiful to watch them develop and grow and I can’t wait to see a gay man, like myself, in a Disney film.
“I’m study animation and one thing my teachers has taught me is
make sure all important characters have different faces. This includes
siblings. So I’m really tired that people are still trying to excuse
Elsa and Anna’s copy and pasted faces. The film cost $150 million to
make and they could tweak the models slightly to make the two sisters
look different? Plus, it’s Disney! They’re the premier animation
company. There is zero excuse.”
