      PSA: If the authors direct attacks on trans peolle aren’t deal breakers for you, then please don’t call yourself an ally. Not celebrating bigots is literally the lowest possible bar.

      I reserve the right not to like you very much for not clearing that bar.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    Thousands of Harry Potter fans braved the rail strikes on Friday to gather at King’s Cross station in London for “back to Hogwarts day”.

    The event was hosted for the second year by Sam Thompson, a TV and radio presenter who has appeared in Made in Chelsea and who is a fan of the franchise.

    At one point Thompson invited Manish Pindoria to the stage where he proposed to his girlfriend, Pavneet Kaur Bason.

    “All my friends and family know that I am the biggest Harry Potter fan around, so when my parents told me about a competition to lead the live countdown at ‘back to Hogwarts’, as a proud Gryffindor I just knew I had to give it a go,” Arnav said.

    “Being able to come back to King’s Cross to host such a brilliant event, in front of so many like-minded fans is literally my dream come true.

    The new cast members and creative team behind the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage play were also there.
