Charlie was 9 the first time he came out.


"Mommy, I don't have a crush," he told his mom when she asked.


"Okay, honey," she said.




Bill was 17 when he came out.


"I'm only part boy," he told George. "I'm also agender."


"What does that mean?" asked George.


"It's when you don't have a gender."


"Oh. Cool."




Percy was 7 when he came out.


"Daddy, I'm a boy."


"No, honey, you're a girl."


"Daddy. I feel like a boy. So I'm a boy."


Arthur nodded. "Okay, Persephone."




George was 14 when he came out.


"I'm bi," he told Fred.


"I'm pan," said Fred.




Fred was 13 the first time he came out.


"Lee. Go out with me."




"I'm asking you out. On a date."


"Oh. Okay. So are you gay?"


"Actually, I'm pan."


"Cool. I am too."



Ron was 13 when he came out.


Mom, dad:


I'm a boy.


The staircase won't even let me up to the girl's dorms.


I just thought you should know.


I'm sorry I didn't tell you before.


Love, Rachel Ron



Ginny was 11 when she came out.


"I'm a girl," she told Bill. "And I need a dress."


"I don't have a dress, but you can wear one of my shirts. It should be long like a dress. What name should I call you?"


"Ginny," she said. And she smiled.




Harry was 8 when he came out.


"Aunt Petunia, I'm a boy."


"Don't be silly, Harriet, you're a boy. Harriet Lily Potter."


"But I'm a boy," he said, quieter.


"Don't let me catch you saying that again," said Uncle Vernon from behind him.


So he hid.




Neville was 13 when he came out.


Fred swung himself over the couch and said, "hey, man."


"I'm not a boy."


"So you're a girl?"


"No. I don't... I don't think I'm either. Is there a word for that?"


"Yeah. Agender. I know because I am that."


"Really?" asked Neville. "That's so cool."


"So what name should I call you?"


"How about Neville?"




Charlie was 19 the second time he came out.


"Mom, I'm not getting married."


"Why not?"


"I don't like people that way. I have friends, sure, but I never get crushes."


"Are you sure?"


"Yeah. I've been thinking about this for a while."





Harry was 11 the second time he came out.


"Harriet Potter, the girl who lived--"


"No," said Harry.




"Harry Potter. The Boy Who Lived."
