Queerty’s Holiday Guide To The Eight Gayest Elves Of All Time

Elves, those pointy-eared magical woodland creatures so often associated with Christmas, usually come across a little light in the pixie boots. We’re not saying that all elves are queer, we’re just saying—well, actually yes, that’s exactly what we’re saying. (What, you never saw The Santaland Diaries?)

Now that Santa’s clan of wee merry men is finally taking a much deserved break from building toys and shoveling reindeer poop, here’s a loving look at some of the planet’s best-known and poofiest elves.

No, not Will Ferrell.

    if you think the elves are gay, you should see British pantomime, girls play boys and vice versa! the principle boy is a girl who always gets the girl!!!, the panto dame is a man and if the panto is Cinderella the ugly sisters are always played by men!

    You missed the gay elf in “Olive the other reindeer”

    Does Tingle from the Legend of Zelda games count as an elf?

  • nerdjizz

    @Rubi-kun: Tingle doesn’t count for this particular list, but Link certainly should. You just know he wants to save Zelda so they could be besties and not because of some unrequited love he harbors for her. Total ‘mo. (And don’t get me started on her cross-dressing proclivities.)
