Yes Harry Potter fanatics, venerable headmaster of Hogwarts Albus Dumbledore is g*y. J.K Rowling, author of the mega-selling fantasy seres that ended last summer, outed the beloved character Friday night while appearing before a full house at Carnegie Hall. After reading briefly from the final book, "Happy Potter and the Dealthy Hallows," she took questions from audience members. She was asked by one young fan whether Dumbledore finds "true love". Dumbledore is g*y," the author responded to gasps and applause. She then explained that Dumbledore was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle between good and bad wizards. "Falling in love can blind us to an extent," Rowling said of Dumbledore's feelings, adding that Dumbledore was "horribly, terribly let down."Dumbledore's love, she observed, was his "great tragedy.""Oh, my God,"Rowling concluded with a laugh, "the fan fiction."Source: CNN.com So I pose this question to HP fans:=),=( or=/?Keep posting,Mickey

I agree with dvschic, does it really matter? haven't Dumbledore proven himself yet? After that matter, he chose to protect muggles and accepted muggle borns in Hogwarts, founded the Order of the Phoenix in order to defeat the Dark Lord, and then hid Harry Potter with a charm that would protect him from Voldemort until he's 17. He came up with the plan about the Deathly Hallows and prepared Harry for the misfortunes that would come. He even made Harry understand Voldemort and how he feels and why he's doing things. Whatever he's done or felt in the past (sincerely) does not matter because he (Dumbledore) did things that would put matters in their right place. And what's more, isn't he the one who said that our choices matter, rather than our abilities? Isn't he the one who gives people a second chance rather to look at their past mistakes? And didn't he suffer when he drank that potion in book 6? He's suffered enough already, losing all the ones he loved. Besides, although he's a wizard, let's not deny the fact that he's also human, capable of committing mistakes and being imperfect. That's all! :-)

his being g*y or not does not change the ending of the book but it tells us in depth about him as long as the ending of the book remian same. and we can not take credit for him that he was the greatest magician and that his mastermind plan about the wand was the major thing that defeated the you know who in the end and he was brave enough to call out his name too
