dc.description.abstractUsing a critical cultural approach, I articulate a queer reading of Disney’s Frozen. In establishing the significance of this study, I address how queer readership positions are formed and why such practices are important. The analysis that follows explains the claim that Frozen challenges the heteronormative hegemony. Through various textual items and narrative figuration, the dominant ideological standards regarding expression and reception of sexuality are challenged and subverted. These components combined with audience interpretation of the text contribute to a queer reading of the film. I examine audience receptions of this reading and situate them within the cultural context. Finally, I explain the potential impact of and justification for making Elsa’s queer subtext canon in the film’s sequel.en_US
