Harry Potter Gay?

By October 6, 2005

Follow me on:

Harry Potter, the hero of J.K. Rowling's popular novels, is usually the one battling injustice; but this time it's a group of teachers that came to his defense.

In earlier reports by Reuters UK, Reverend Graham Taylor, a former Anglican priest and the author of the best selling novel "Shadowmancer", accused Harry Potter of being gay and called Rowling's villain characters wimps during a talk with 12-year-old London students. As quoted on CNN.com, Taylor said, "As for Harry Potter, well, he's not the only gay in the village." The Reverend was immediately asked to leave the school. School officials later stated, "The remarks that were made were thought by the staff to be offensive and were well below the standards that we expect of responsible and thoughtful adults working in our school."

Reverend Taylor claimed the comment was a joke, but as Harry Potter knows, some evil is no laughing matter. In a later correction, Reuters UK withdrew the report about gay comments from Taylor and reported that he was fired for swearing.

i think it’s not true… that’s the only thing i can say about him… and i don’t think he’s gay… isn’t it obvious???!!! he has a girlfriend already!his girlfriend’s name is joanna! but i don’t know if it’s true… and as donte say… i don’t care if daniel radcliffe is gay because he is constantly linked to his co-star emma watson and crushing on cameron diaz and nicole kidman!

Oh my god, Andy76598! Are you even familiar with the world of the internet? Some people are fans of the gay harry potter and make fan art. DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE REAL.

What’s up with this article anyway? It’s just fiction and that man shouldn’t be saying things to 12 years olds. Hell, they just learned about the birds and the bees. They shouldn’t be told about this by an adult yet.

Please people. Enough with the worrying about if he/she is gay, just accept them for normal people.

ARE YOU GUYS CRAZY? Harry Potter is so not gay. My stupid friend who is a twilight fan says he is gay. No one else in the world believes such a thing. I am a big fan and even if he was gay, who cares? The only one gay in Harry Potter is Albus Dumbledore. They say J.K Rowling reveals that he is. But I still don’t care. It doesn’t matter.
