J.K. Rowling Reveals There Are LGBT Students at Hogwarts

J.K. Rowling has been revealing all sorts of behind-the-scenes information about her hit book series “Harry Potter” – and now she’s saying there have been LGBT students at Hogwarts!

“do you think there are a lot of LGBT students in modern age Hogwarts? I like to imagine they formed an LGBT club it’s safe to assume that Hogwarts had a variety of people and I like to think it’s a safe place for LGBT students” one fan asked the famous author on Twitter.

J.K. had a perfect response, where she said “But of course” and included an inspiring poster that reads, “If Harry Potter taught us anything it’s that no one should live in a closet.” During that same Twitter chat, J.K. also revealed there was a Jewish wizard at Hogwarts.

    …….well thats great but she really couldve incorporated that in the actual books. I love the Harry Potter series but there was pretty much NO Lgbt representation so i dont know why shes telling this now. Same with her big revelation that there was at least 1 jewish student at Hogwarts……..like seriously? One.

    Let’s remember that at the time of her writing the Harry Potter books they where extremely controversial with Christian and Parenting groups doing whatever they could to get the Harry Potter books taken off the shelves.

    Now imagine the controversy if she would have actually included an openly LGBT character.

    give me a break … after the MILLIONS they made off that first book for publishers she could have written ANYTHING she wanted to in the rest of the series … even the smallest of character would have made so many of her readers feel good about themselves … no Christian hate group could have stopped her or her publishers. She doesn’t get to play LGBT youth supporter now after the fact.

    Well, Dumbledore was gay indeed, he was inlove with Gellert Grindelwald, JKR said that a few years ago, of course he never said anything about it in the books but there was a reason he never got married
