News: Rowling Approves Queer Harry Potter Pic as Pulse Benefit

Harry Potter Queer Art

An anthology comic being produced to benefit the victims and families who lost loved ones in the shooting at Pulse in Orlando, Fla., has scored the support of a huge name in publishing: Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who according to Bleeding Cool, has for the first time ever permitted a drawing of her beloved Hogwarts characters in a comic book.

And not just any sketch; the approved illustration for Love Is Love, by Jim Lee, features Harry with his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, and their beloved gay former headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, as they cast a spell that appears as an unfurling banner comprised of Pride rainbow colors.

Love is Love, to be published jointly by IDW and DC Comics, consists of 144 pages and will retail for just $10, when it becomes available on December 28th. All of the material was donated by writers, artists, and editors and all proceeds will go to Pulse victims, survivors, and their families via the Equality Florida organization.
