latest celebrity outing, Dumbledore is gay

Albus Dumbledore
Another celebrity is outed, this time, the principal of Hogwarts - Albus Dumbledore. I am really surprised.

HARRY Potter author JK Rowling has confirmed what fans have long suspected - the principal of Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore, is indeed gay.

Rowling outed the headmaster at a sell-out appearance at Carnegie Hall in New York. After a brief reading from the final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Rowling took questions from the audience.

When a young fan asked if Dumbledore would find "true love", Rowling answered: "Dumbledore is gay".

The outing was greeted with gasps, then applause from the crowd, the Associated Press has reported.

SillyDog701 discussion thread - Albus Dumbledore is gay, what?

I am not a Harry Potter fan, but one of the main characters in the world's best selling book is gay, and the main readers of the books are kids. I don't know if conservative parents would be happy to learn this.

Professor Albus Dumbledore was first played by Richard Harris in first two Harry Potter movies. Harris passed away on 25 October 2002, two weeks before the premiere of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Dumbledore was replaced by Michael Gambon.
