200710210126 DUMBLEDORE IS GAY!
Following up her earlier in the week bra slip embarassment, Harry Potter author J.K Rowling has created an even greater ruckus by revealing that Dumbledore was gay.

JKR: My truthful answer to you… I always thought of Dumbledore as gay. [ovation.] … Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwald, and that that added to his horror when Grindelwald showed himself to be what he was. To an extent, do we say it excused Dumbledore a little more because falling in love can blind us to an extend, but he met someone as brilliant as he was, and rather like Bellatrix he was very drawn to this brilliant person, and horribly, terribly let down by him. Yeah, that’s how i always saw Dumbledore. In fact, recently I was in a script read through for the sixth film, and they had Dumbledore saying a line to Harry early in the script saying I knew a girl once, whose hair… [laughter]. I had to write a little note in the margin and slide it along to the scriptwriter, “Dumbledore’s gay!” [laughter] “If I’d known it would make you so happy, I would have announced it years ago!”

Jo also said after revelation: “I had to give you something to talk about for the next 10 years…Just imagine the fan fiction now.”


Indeed, slashers now can include as canon even more late night visits from Harry to the old headmasters private quarters. We’re sure to see an upswing in Grindlewald/Dumbledore pairings, but that is kind of creepy because it means Albus pined after the Wizarding world’s equivalent of…Adolf Hitler? Yech. Well, J.K. never said it was all going to be one big chocolate frog now, did she.

  1. Pfft! Slashers do not need your charity, JKR!

    (However, we greatly appreciate it and will commence squeeing.)

  2. “I had to give you something to talk about for the next 10 years…Just imagine the fan fiction now.”

    THAT’S the most important reveal of all. “10 years.” Very specific there about the number of years. Why? Because 2017 is when the epilogue occurs, and the adventures of the next generation begin. And that’s when I think she’ll release the first in the next septology… Mostly from young Al’s perspective, as he’s not a first year.

    I could be wrong. I was wrong about them changing the name of the last book… but it makes some sense. 2017 being the first year for Albus Severus at Hogwarts, it being 10 years after the last book… Heck, the book will probably release on midnight September 1st, 2017 even, that being a Friday…

  3. Er, dammit “he’s NOW a first year…”

  4. Sign of the times, innit?

    I always wondered about Professor McGoneagle, actually. There was a moment right before Voldemort’s forces attacked Hogwarts when I had to wonder about the relationship between Professor McGoneagle and one of the other teachers.

  6. Well, it’s gotten attention, which is important … after all, if she’s not planning on writing any more Harry Potter stories (for a while), then how to keep people interested?

    Compare the above pic with this one…

    … and you tell me you didn’t see it coming.

  8. I’m alittle surprised to learn about Dumbledore, I think he is a great wizard and a great mentor for Harry and his friends Hermione, and Ron and the other Gryffindors. I don’t know why J K Rowling said that about a great wizard anyway. I also hope she was just kidding!

  9. I KNEW IT!!!! OoO

  10. Daniel Mata says:

    This is pretty weak on her part. She had seven books to give the slightest off mention that he was gay, and now that all the books are out, she is applauded for stating something after the fact? Please, she didn’t trow anyone a bone, she only threw bull plop.

  11. I’m alittle surprised to learn about Dumbledore, I think he is a great wizard and a great mentor for Harry and his friends Hermione, and Ron and the other Gryffindors.

    I think so.

    Heeeh It explains that plum colored suit he wore in the memory of the pensive in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince….
