So, I know I don't post here much anymore! I'll try to post a little more often. Apologies for the cross-posting of this current message if people see it from me more than once. The New World Magischola kickstarter isn't just putting on live action roleplaying events where people can play characters in a magical school inspired by Harry Potter. They're also raising money to write a novel about a female protagonist of color in that world, a world where the house founders of the magical university include two women, a person of nonbinary gender, a black founder, and a native american founder. I appreciate that J.K. Rowling has been willing to say after the fact that Dumbledore was gay and that Hermione *could* be black based on the text -- but let's face it, the actual text as written is overwhelmingly populated with white, straight, cisgender characters. If you'd like to promote having more diverse characters in fantasy, and you have some money to contribute (or you want to read a book with magical school story that's a little more heterogeneous!), I highly recommend chipping in at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nwmagischola/new-world-magischola-a-college-of-wizardry-larp. Only 4 days left -- the campaign ends Monday.
