Dumbledore was gay, JK tells amazed fans

There could hardly have been a bigger sensation if Russell Crowe, Rod Stewart or Sven-Goran Eriksson had come out of the closet. Millions of fans around the world were yesterday digesting the news that one of the main characters in the Harry Potter novels, Albus Dumbledore, is gay.The revelation came from author JK Rowling during a question-and-answer session at New York’s Carnegie Hall. It instantly hurtled around the internet and the world. News websites in China and Germany announced starkly: ‘JK Rowling: “Dumbledore is gay”.’ One blogger wrote on a fansite: ‘My head is spinning. Wow. One more reason to love gay men.’

After reading briefly from her mega-selling book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, on Friday night, Rowling took questions from an audience of 1,600 students. A 19-year-old from Colorado asked about the avuncular headmaster of Hogwarts School: ‘Did Dumbledore, who believed in the prevailing power of love, ever fall in love himself?’The author replied: ‘My truthful answer to you…I always thought of Dumbledore as gay.’ The audience reportedly fell silent – then erupted into prolonged applause.

Rowling, 42, continued: ‘Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwald [a bad wizard he defeated long ago], and 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 extent, 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.’

She added: ‘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…” I had to write a little note in the margin and slide it along to the scriptwriter, “Dumbledore’s gay!”‘

Amazed by the warm reaction of the audience, Rowling, on her first US tour in seven years, joked: ‘Just imagine the fan fiction now.

I wish I could see his Harry Potter.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Even Olivander can’t make a wand like this.

Don’t look at my Ronald Weasley.

  1. why is harry and draco naked and in bed and why does draco have his hands over harry

  2. Its not my picture just search Harry Potter gay. I think they just painted on Draco’s photo on one of those Harry Potter naked magazines.

  3. This is insane. Children all over the world took Harry as role model. How on Earth could someone dare to spoil this innocence?

  4. HARRY POTTER GAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I don’t believed!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I think the picture of Harry and Draco is totally HOT! Look at it as a piece of art. And if you don’t like it, look away, lol. You have to realize, that in today’s world, everything is possible through imagination. That includes pairings of famous people both real and fictional. It’s harmless expression of one’s thoughts and feelings that causes debate among groups that find it offensive. However, if you think about it, there’s always going to be SOMEONE that views someone else’s idea as offensive.

  6. Dumbledore is a fictional character…this doesn’t really mean anything. Women love gay men. Or gay anything. At least two women I know are convinced that there dogs are gay.

    But, when all is said and done, awesome! I love JK. She breaks all the rules baby.

    Also I don’t think that this is a spoiling of innocence. Only if you think of gays as perverse…but that is a pretty short-sighted viewpoint.

  7. Draco is so hot!

  8. If you guys are THIS shocked about a picture that doesn’t show more than the boys torso, than you should, definitely, keep away from the Harry Potter fanfiction world. You would, most likely, have an heart attack…

  9. i think harry potter is sexy as hell i would love
    to be in his jeans with all of that

  10. ur sick about puting this here!!!!

  11. at the end of the day, Daniel radcliffe is an actor,
    same as tom felton

  12. i love the pic of harry and drako it turns me on and dumbledore was gay with that guy he hanged around when he was young and the boy was there when dumbledores sister died and thats when they brock up well at least that what JKRowling said! and anyone has dan email address give itn to me

  13. This is all freaking weird.

  14. I like men. I think all of this is sexy beyond belief

  15. yeahh well idk i kinda find the one of draco and harry pretty sexy and if i might add daniel radcliffe and tom are merely actors and this shouldnt be such a shock… actors have to go and do things to promote themselves…. get over it… and plus i would definately threesome with those two.. lmao

  16. I can’t and i won’t bliev this ..
    O.O, this is insane ..
    eeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww !!

  17. i wish i was harry

  18. i think the pics of Harry and drako r so sexy!!!!!!!!

  19. Oh, I don’t belive!!!!!!!!!! That’s sound crazy

  20. Harry Potter’s Gay? How’d ya get the pic of Malfoy and Potter? How’d Dumbledore become gay if they didn’t mention it in the film?

  21. First off, I KNEW IT!!!!!!! My friends and I have a sort of “If we’re bored should open a HP book on a random page and find gay connations” thing, their is so many in there that it’s just not funny, well actually their is 😛 but hey, Go Dumbledore, be loud and proud is all that I can say.

    ‘Sides this just gives all of us of Fanfiction.net more fuel to work with the create wacky gay stories 😛

    But Also the image of Harry and Draco is heaps old, and there are worse ones out there, that and the fact their is a naked Photo of Daniel a couple down from it, and your not kicking a stink up about that? no offece but that’s just weird.

  22. That’s sooooo disgusting! What a faggot!

  23. LOL everyone leaves such interesting responses and I agree with Just_A_Girl_Who_Likes_Too_Think your all hot and bothered about the picture of Darco and Harry? When apparently it might be shopped? When below it there is a full nude of Harry? This just doesn’t make sense if you ask me…I personally think the picture of Darco and Harry is HOT!! Just Darco’s expression…well anyways tootles….^.^

  24. i think it was cute that dumbledore was gay, i think that people will accept gay people more than if they allready love dumbledore!
    i think is mad thinking it is wrong ore insane!
    just cos u love a persone of ur own sex dosen’t make u insane!!
    I’m not gay but i stands for what i think!

  25. lol the picture of harry and draco is completely photoshopped,but the picture of Daniel Raddcliff naked is real.

    Either way im happy JK outed Dumbledore :D!!
    It’s about time 😄

    now all thats left is Draco and Harry 😉

  26. I think that those pics are so wierd…
    I mean the 1 with Draco and Harry is hot, but….

    And I don’t see anything wrong with Dumbledore being gay. I mean, It makes total sense when you think about Grindalwald and him…
    just perfect sense…

  27. i think the only reason daniel sigbed up foe that play was so he could get some attention b/c ya know the jonas brothers is the shit now!

  28. Why should there be somuch fuzz about a thing just as normal as why one person is coloured and the other white? Why wouldn’t a writer , who eventually created ALL of the plots and the persons in it , why wouldn’t she make one or more characters gay if she feels like doing that.
    I’m right behind miss Rowling: good for you babe,and also : good for you Dumbledore ! Just incredibly pitty of all those wasted years he wasn’t out,hahaha. He missed so much.
