Many of our maps, games, and escape rooms play in the magical world created by JK Rowling. At this point, her active and hateful transphobia is well-known. The size of her platform provides immense power to do real violence to trans people and communities, including the waves of anti-trans laws sweeping the U.S. (For more info on this, see the excellent resource from the Gayly Prophet: A Brief History of JKR’s Transphobia)
St. Louis Fantasy Maps has made the difficult decision to stop promoting this part of our work – 2023 is the last year we’ll be producing Potter-inspired content.
Until then, ALL OF THE PROFITS from our Magical Design section will benefit the important work of St. Louis Queer+ Support Helpline.
SQSH is a “community-based, queer-led collective dedicated to facilitating healing spaces and providing holistic support for queer St. Louisans to thrive” and we’re honored to support their essential and inspiring work!
