Albus Dumbledore is Gay!

albus dumbledore, harry potter, j.k. rowling, hogwarts headmaster, gayAlbus Dumbledore may have been dead by book six of the phenomenal Harry Potter series but he resurfaced in the final book, The Deathly Hallows, as god-like, giving Harry some of his usual fatherly and expert advice. But what of us did not know until now is that he will continue to leave us into such an entrancing event as when Harry met with him in the heavenly King's Cross and create a stir even after all the Potter book has been laid out for public reading.

Well the truth is that Albus Dumbledore is gay. In an interview at New York's Carnegie Hall the other night J.K. Rowling admitted that she always intended the wizard and Hogwarts headmaster in her famous Potter series as a gay character. Why Rowling revealed this astounding information comes as a real shocker to some, while a delight to most as evidenced by the audience's applause at the Hall.

Rowling furthered that she would have revealed it earlier had she known this revelation would have been so positively taken by the fans, although some of them questioned why she would declare the beloved character's sexual orientation despite not giving away any hints or references to it in her books.

A concerned individual, Robert Thompson, a TV and pop culture professor at Syracuse University said "A true purist might say, 'This isn't fair to do something like this after the fact. But ... it has a degree of authority coming from the one who made the characters up."

She may be hated by a very few upon this announcement but Mellisa Anelli, the who runs the renowned Harry Potter fan site leaky cauldron said, "It's not just that she made a Harry Potter character gay. She made the most popular non-Harry Potter character gay."

"Dumbledore is clearly the most powerful and impressive character in thealbus dumbledore, harry potter, j.k. rowling, hogwarts headmaster, gay series," she added. "The fact that he is gay presents an image that, depending on your point of view, is pretty exciting or confusing. Hopefully, it will make people think about their attitudes."

Like any other guy coming out of the closet, or in this case a gay guy pulled out of the closet by her creator, there is nothing wrong with being a gay. After all, there shouldn't be no discrimination when it comes to one's sexuality. And J.K. Rowling still knows how to make a buzz even if the boy Potter's adventures have met its finale.
