Florida Man says that Harry was the same age when all the books came out, so they “grew up” with the boy wizard.
“But for a series with hundreds of characters, the fact that no characters were openly queer in the books or movies was discouraging. This character, for me, is about reimagining what a queerer universe for Harry Potter could look like,” Florida Man said.
Florida Man also said the performance going viral is a “huge step” in realizing dreams of a drag career, and is “ultimately humbled by all the opportunities this is creating for me.”
The drag queen said the cherry on top for the experience would be if Ariana Grande, J.K. Rowling, or Sasha Velour saw the performance.
