And now I know why.
LONDON, U.K. — In a controversial Tweet this morning, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling revealed that you, the reader, have been gay ever since the release of the best-selling children’s series.
“When writing, I always envisioned the reader as gay,” Rowling wrote. “This has been the case since the first page of Philosopher’s Stone, and as the dictator of canon, what I say is now established lore.”It's an interesting admission for any author to make to her adoring fans over two decades after penning the first of the books read by millions. I really have no idea why she would feel the need to say it now unless she meant to be malicious.
