The hidden meaning behind Harry Potter...

...told in two paragraphs, five sentences, roughly 140 words:

The story is about a boy who lives in a cupboard ("in the closet"). His Aunt and Uncle are ashamed of him because his parents were quite eccentric ("flaming") and they are deeply concerned and afraid that he will turn out just like them. On his 11th birthday (i.e. roughly at the onset of puberty), the boy discovers that he is actually a "wizard", different in both style and substance from straight people, or "muggles" (breeders).

The boy is groomed into his new existence by a large, hairy bear of a man who shows Harry a hidden underground community of "wizards"(the gay subculture) living right under the noses of the general population . Harry's first visit to this subculture involves traveling through "Diagon Alley", a play on the word diagonally (not straight).

  5. Only Dumbledore is gay. How could you even think of saying Harry is gay? He gets married to Ginny. And your logic is wrong. There are tons of muggles who are gay and obviously there are tons of wizards who arent.
