Details From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child That Make No Sense
Albus and Scorpius Aren’t Gay
After Deathly Hallows was released, J.K. went to some lengths to tell us all that Dumbledore had been gay the entire time. In writing a new story, you’d think she might have put some effort into creating gay characters that were more open about their sexuality than Dumbledore had been.
In Cursed Child, Albus and Scorpius seem like great candidates. They’re incredibly close friends who seem to rely almost entirely on one another. Alas, they turn out to have been just friends all along, even though there are serious homoerotic undertones. It’s starting to feel like this might be something of a blindspot for J.K.
