Long time readers will know I’m not on Twitter, Facebook, etc, although I do pop up on Reddit from time to time. You may have seen the long term story around J K Rowling’s tweets and allegations around her support of gender critical views. I’m not going to go into that here.
What I am going to mention, is Daniel Radcliffe’s article over on the Trevor Project. Frankly, it is a beautifully written, positive, and supportive piece. Its eloquence lies in what the much loved Harry Potter stories mean to young fans, some of which may be somewhere along the Trans spectrum, and how such a discussion around the author’s views may be affecting their love of the stories.
Given what is going on in the world from certain world ‘leaders’ – yes, the quotes are there for a reason 🙂 – seeing such a message gives me hope. Hope that allies are there and able to use their privilege to give a platform to help and support those without. Be more Dan ♥️
