Serious Talking - Witchcraft and Wizardry for Equality

The Harry Potter Alliance is a nonprofit organization that uses the books and movies to mobilize people across the world toward different issues.
This month they started the Make It Better - The Bullying Horcrux campaign, which focuses on making safe school environment for LGBT youth and supporting gay marriage.

The Harry Potter books are all about fighting for equality and standing up against prejudice. And when the author J.K. Rowling stated that Professor Albus Dumbledore is gay,  she just made it more true that "there is never going to be a time when JK Rowling is not my greatest hero on this earth!"

This campaign is something that caught my attention because first of all, obviously, it's about Harry Potter, and it is an issue that is extremely relevant and we all should be involved in any way. As a huge Harry Potter fan I think it is fantastic what the Alliance does, specially this specific campaign using the books to bring awareness and trying to make the fight for equality better.
