On Dec. 16, J.K. Rowling finally revealed that there were Jewish students at Hogwarts. So fans started wondering: Were there LGBT students, as well?
The normally riddle-attuned Rowling provided a straightforward answer: “But of course.” While Rowling didn’t mention any names or a singular name (like in the case of Jewish wizard Anthony Goldstein), the author provided an illustration from The Youth Project, an LGBT organization from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to highlight her point.
Considering that some students of Hogwarts went on to become American law students and members of the Bling Ring, (from the movie version of Hogwarts at least), it’s safe to say that Hogwarts housed a pretty diverse group of highly gifted individuals. However, the one unrepresented group at Hogwarts? With a twist of irony, wiccans.
