Harry Potter Film Ignores Gay Leading Man
I’m surprised at Ms. Know-It-All, J. K. Rowling. I’ve never seen a Harry Potter film, and I never plan to see one. It’s not my genre, and it never will be. So I’m only linking to this. I do, however, have one comment at the end.
When asked whether Dumbledore’s sexuality will be mentioned at all in the film, director David Yates said:
“Not explicitly. But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology and each other.”
Clearly, a lot of gay people are not happy about this. You can read the rest here.
You’ve seen me rant about THAT film, Call Me By Your Name. I ranted because that’s a story about a 17 year old barely legal boy having a sexual relationship with an older man. It’s the same dismal story line gay men get all the time in films. But even worse, they refer to Call Me By Your Name as a gay romance when it is anything but a gay romance. And now this, with Harry Potter. God forbid anyone should give gay people a good romance, or show kids a positive love story between two men.
As someone in the comments pointed out, at least Star Trek did it correctly.
Neo-Nazi Tells Court He’s Bisexual
Here’s a story about a guy who allegedly planned a “murderous attack” on gay people, but was stopped before he had the chance to do anything. And now he’s denying it. It’s very twisted.
