Master Groomstress JK Rowling: Hogwarts had ‘LGBT’ students

J.K. Rowling, author of the controversial Harry Potter children’s book series, confirmed by way of a tweeted response to a fan's question that homosexual students would most certainly attend her fictional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

When a Harry Potter fan asked if “it's safe to assume that Hogwarts had a variety of people and it's a safe place for LGBT students”, Rowling tweeted, "but of course."

Along with this response Rowling posted a rainbow-trimmed picture with the words, "If Harry Potter taught us anything it’s that no one should live in a closet."

This is the second time Rowling has informed her fans that homosexuality was a normal part of her stories aimed at children.

At Carnegie Hall during her 2007 US book tour, in response to a question by a fan, Rowling announced that the prominent character of the "good" wizard headmaster, Dumbledore is, in fact, a homosexual.  (more...)
