At LeakyCon 2018 in Dallas, I collected stories from other LGBTQ+ Harry Potter fans about their experiences as part of the Harry Potter fan community for research I’m conducting as a PhD student in Counseling Psychology. I’d like to tell you about what I found, why it matters, and where we're going next. Additional topics include sharing the joys and struggles of bringing Harry Potter into academic research and therapy settings.
