J.K. Rowling might be done with the Harry Potter series of books, but that doesn't mean that she's done surprising us with information from the Potterverse. In a recent Q&A session, Jo revealed that one of the most beloved characters in the Potter pantheon, headmaster Albus Dumbledore, is gay, and was in love with rival wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
We think this is completely awesome. Having a prominent character such as this being a gay man, and teaching kids that it's ok to idolize someone who lives a different lifestyle is A-OK in our book. We're sure that the radical Christian groups who have been trying to ban the books since their inception will cry foul, but it doesn't matter. Albus Dumbledore is gay, and there's nothing, and we mean nothing, wrong with that.
