The Harry Potter Alliance has been a trans-inclusive and trans-affirming organization for many years, from our 2016 Protego campaign to our consistent trans-affirming policies throughout our programs. Eight percent of our members are trans and trans people have served as both senior staff and volunteers to build and organize the Harry Potter Alliance's programs and campaigns for many years. We have a very clear stance: trans women are women, trans men are men, non-binary people are non-binary, and affirming and respecting people’s gender is kind, loving, and literally saves lives.
Fan activists recognize that there is almost no media produced without problematic creators or owners, given that so many of our favorite stories are ultimately distributed by corporations and publishers who are not perfect (and sometimes far from it). What matters to the Harry Potter Alliance is how fans choose to embody, share, and re-imagine the stories that meant something to them, and how fans can use our incredible, creative, imaginative communities to build a better, more just and loving world for all.
The Harry Potter Alliance is fan created and fan led. We do not receive funding from and are not affiliated with J.K. Rowling or Warner Bros. Entertainment.
