Dumbledore is Gay!
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling outed Hotwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore at last night’s talk at New York City’s Carnegie Hall.
A young fan asked during the Q&A if Dumbledore finds true love and Rowling responded, “Dumbledore is gay.”
The audience gasped, some burst into applause, others gave a standing ovation.
Added Rowling, “Dumbledore fell in love with rival Gellert Grindelwald… Don’t forget, falling in love can blind us. [He] was very drawn to this brilliant person. This was Dumbledore‘s great tragedy… In fact, recently I was in a script read through for the sixth film, and they had Dumbledore saying a line to Harry early in the script saying I knew a girl once, whose hair… [laughter]. I had to write a little note in the margin and slide it along to the scriptwriter, “Dumbledore‘s gay!” [laughter] If I’d known it would make you so happy, I would have announced it years ago!”
