Author J.K. Rowling has confirmed what some Harry Potter fans have been speculating -- Hogwart's headmaster Albus Dumbledore was gay.

"If I had known this would have made you so happy, I would have told you years ago," Rowling told a full house of fans at New York's Carnegie Hall Friday.

Rowling said she slipped movie director David Yates a note about Dumbledore's sexuality after she noticed a reference to a girl in Dumbledore's past during the making of the sixth Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, E! Entertainment reported.

Rowling, on her first U.S. book tour since 2000, said love briefly blinded Dumbledore to the evil of Gellert Grindelwald, who became a master of the dark arts in the Potter books.

"Falling in love can blind us to an extent," Rowling said, adding that after Dumbledore was horribly, terribly let down he went on to destroy Grindelwald in a classic wizard battle between good and evil.

Soon you will sit on the bench

You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

What relveance does it have to the book? Why did she need to make him ghey? Cumon JK wtf, it has nothing to do with the book.
#12
It's still weird. Why would you spend time thinking about the sexuality of characters in a book where sex has nothing to do with it? Why did Rowling feel the need to do this? WHY IS SHE GIVING FODDER TO THE FAN FICTION WRITERS!?

side stories, half the content that it's in the books isn't relevant, but it makes the characters more 3-d and interesting
That's what she said

well think about it, it kinda does have something to do with it.... you couldn't have him just going around and doing things with teachers, it just wouldn't keep him as a symbol of respect. It just kinda solved the whole problem of him not having a wife too

^ummm it's kinda her book so she really can't be wrong. But Gandalf's not gay, just the actor that plays him. Ian Mckellen(sp?) is still a godly actor anyway

^well you don't have to talk about it.... this is the pit, you can talk about anything here. If you want to go talk about guitars go to the gear forums...... I'm not the kind of geek that writes and reads fan fiction, but I know all about the books(and movies) I was at the premiere for both this year. I read the 7th book in a day yes I am a fan, but I'm not one to do all of the other things that have to do with being a fan

Not all the teachers were female?

It really has no relevance to the books, nor does it (to my memory) even hint at dumbledore's sexuality. Why does someone have to be gay to not have a wife? I see no reason for this to come out.


Excuse the pun.

Grow up. People don't have to give a damn about your opinion. You're just trying to cause an arguement.
