For this reason, Elsa, a societal reject, has become a gay icon. She struggles with her secret ice power that is only resolved when she learns to accept herself for who she is. In many ways, Elsa gives strength to LGBTQ audiences living in the shadows, while also validating gay people who have been brave enough to come out. The film’s central song, “Let it go” may even be read as a coming-out anthem. With lyrics like, “Let it go, let it go/ Turn away and slam the door/ I don 't care what they 're going to say,” Elsa powerfully emulates the experiences of many LGBTQ people by turning ignominy about being different into newfound pride.
The overt message of this film was the everyday struggles and fears of someone battling or coming to terms with their sexual identity, as well as, on a larger scale, we as individuals must let go and accept who we are.

While Art openly admits he has no clue what he’s doing, Phlox completely delves into the identity she chooses. When being told she is unable to have sex as a practicing Christian, she drops that part of her. Chabon writes how does she does hang onto the opinon that gays are gross and homosexual fornication “disgusting” (109). Her attitude on the topic obviously contrasts with Arthur dramatically; additionally, Art is constantly having an inner battle about what his sexual preference is, so her inability to be empathetic does not fair well with her plan to win over Art in the end. Her dramatic two page letter condones his homosexual tendencies, but also offers to take him back once he chooses the heterosexual life (Chabon 231).

An example of this, it can be observed in the film Bend It Like Beckham, where a cultural prejudice on the subject of sexuality is evidenced, through the character Tony, who is one of Jess' best friends. In a scene of the movie he reveals to his friend that he is gay, which in response to this Jess replied, "but, you're Indian!”. It immediately shows that something is wrong, that he cannot be gay because his culture does not allow it. The culture to which Tony belongs is called Punjabi Sikh, it believes in five vices and lust is one of them; most Sikhs view homosexuality as proof of lust.
