There are plenty of good authors of juvenile fiction. No reason to put up with JK's nonsense.
Off the top of my head, alternatives to the Harry Potter franchise
The Young Magicians And The Thieves' Almanac by Nick Mohammed;
The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy;
Electrigirl by Jo Cotterill;
Unleashed by Ali Sparkes;
The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge;
Akata by Nnedi Okorafor;
Legacy of Orisha by Tomi Adeyemi
And bin off the film franchise. Watch Bednobs and Broomsticks. Angela Lansbury is worth a hundred-thousand (100,000) Johnny Depps.
There are no trans people in the author list because I don't know any working in juvenile fantasy. Hit me up if you know someone.
If you really want your Potter-dollars to go to a trans person and don't mind reading something different then I suggest:
Contemporary issues (juvenile): Juno Dawson, Meredith Russo
Fantasy/Horror (adult): Roz Kaveney, Caitlín R. Kiernan, Poppy Z Brite
