If you’re Harry Potter‘s fans, you will know who Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, known as Dumbledore, is. But, did you heard what J.K. Rowling said about Dumbledore recently? “Dumbledore is gay, actually,” Rowling said.
According to a news published by ABC News:
Well, it’s official. Albus Dumbledore, a hero of the phenomenally popular Harry Potter series and headmaster of the wizarding school Hogwarts, is gay. That’s right, Harry’s mentor and father-figure would prefer a nice wizard to a hot witch any day.
In a surprising new Potter twist, author J.K. Rowling outed Dumbledore at New York’s Carnegie Hall in front of 2,000 Potter fans during a question and answer session Friday night.
Rowling went on to explain that Dumbledore fell for Gellert Grindelwald, his childhood friend with similarly brilliant wizarding skills, who eventually went over to the dark side and became the predecessor to the infamous villain Voldemort. That love, explained Rowling, was Dumbledore’s “great tragedy.”
Rowling explained that the issue of Dumbledore’s sexuality came up in the making of one of the Harry Potter films.
