This page is about the character Harry Potter. For the book series, see Harry Potter series.
Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter in the film version of the Harry Potter series.

Harry Potter is the main character in the Harry Potter series, a series of seven children's fantasy novels, and the film series based on the novels. Although his canon love interests, including Cho Chang and Ginny Weasley, are all heterosexual, some fans have noted that he seems to spend a lot of time describing the handsomeness of other boys in the series, most notably Cedric Diggory. While this is most likely due to the fact that the books are written by a heterosexual woman, some fans have argued that it can be used as evidence to claim that Harry is canonically bisexual.

Harry is a popular subject of slash fanworks, with the most popular Harry slash ships being Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, which has more than 14,000 works tagged with the pairing on the popular fanfiction archive An Archive of Our Own (AO3), and Harry Potter/Severus Snape, which is tagged in more than 6600 works on AO3.
