Yes, indeed. At a recent talk, Rowling revealed that Dumbledore, master wizard and Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay. Turns out Dumbledore was in love with his great rival Gellart Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle. “Falling in love can blind us to an extent,” Rowling said of Dumbledore’s feelings, saying that Dumbledore was “horribly, terribly let down.” It’s a great twist: you wish, though, there had been a way for her to make it more apparent in the books. There was a very interesting article on the subject published by Dermod Moore of Hot Press recently. Check it out on his blog here.
