J. K. Rowling – Dumbledore is Gay

“Dumbledore is gay,” J.K. Rowling told a packed crowd at Carnegie Hall yesterday.

She then explained that Dumbledore was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle between good and bad wizards.  “Falling in love can blind us to an extent,” Rowling said of Dumbledore’s feelings, adding that Dumbledore was “horribly, terribly let down.”

Dumbledore’s love, Rowling said, was his “great tragedy.”

Rowling regards her Potter books as a “prolonged argument for tolerance” and urges her fans to “question authority.”

Christian and conserative groups have alleged her books promote witchcraft.  Her news about Dumbledore, she said, will give them one more reason to not like her books.

On a personal note:  When I heard Rowling use the words, “a prolonged argument for tolerance,” I liked the sound of that.
