Daniel Radcliffe isn’t about to let J.K. Rowling’s transphobia mess up his bag.
The actor has responded to the ‘Harry Potter’ author’s controversial comments on trans identity through an essay for The Trevor Project — an organization dedicated to preventing suicide in the LGBTQIA+ community.
“Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I,” he wrote
“It’s clear that we need to do more to support transgender and nonbinary people, not invalidate their identities, and not cause further harm.”
