Dumbledore noted,"Our greatest hope is that our wedding will inspire others to stand against hate, even in the shadow of bigotry"
Just before the gay marriage was legalised in Ireland, J. K. Rowling, author of Harry Potter, tweeted "she was hoping Gandalf and Dumbledore would be able to get married" but the Westboro Baptist Church threatened to picket the wedding if it ever happened.
Heeding to the words of J. K. Rowling, the fictional wizards are getting married on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at the Equality House, directly in front of the Westboro Baptist Church.
Dumbledore, Headmaster of the "Wizarding school Hogwarts" in Harrry Potter wrote on his facebook, "Our greatest hope is that our wedding will inspire others to stand against hate, even in the shadow of bigotry, and send a message to let all "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgenders"(LGBT) kids know they are loved and valued.
"There are too many groups like the Westboro Baptist Church that spread hate to our LGBTQ youth, making them feel less than. So in lieu of wedding gifts, we invite you to celebrate our love by making a donation to help counter the harmful messages of the Westboro Baptist Church", he added.
