Never again will I be able to read Harry Potter and not laugh when "Dumbledore tenderly touched Harry's wand."

I didn't see the faintest hint of 'alternate' sexuality in any of the books. Wierd how this 'argument for tolerance' describes a society in which pretty much everyone is white, middle class and British...unless you are one of the incredibly stereotypical foriegn people like Viktor Krum or Cho Chang of course, who all talk with exagerrated accents and are the most balls-out Foriegn people ever.

Also, I think that's about it for Dean Thomas and Seamus. They might as well tell everyone.

I've only read the first two books, but if Rowling can suddenly reveal this and if no one suspected it, either her writing needs work or this is some attention getting afterthought.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I never thought of Dumbledore as having a preference. He was just the wise old wizard. I don't think it really changes anything.

I don't know why Rowling would even bother. Even more importantly, I don't know why anyone cares.

I maintain my stance. Harry Potter is STILL overrated.

Yannick - No. Not allowed.

Who thinks that this is Rowlng's cry for attention? I mean, she has finally stepped from the limelight.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is one last blast of controversy to give her some extra publicity whilst she writes her new book...

That's just the point. We could not tell from the text, and it doesn't change anything now because personal relationships were a nonoption to him. Rowling was stating a point, that point being that Dumbledore does not take into account those kind of things.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

So true. Britain's really multicultural, at least compared to Sweden. There's not a hint of that in the books....only exception being Kingsley, I suppose. He didnt matter anyway!

And the prime minister mattered how...? He's just a token black guy, so annoying.

Funny how all of you are completely missing the context.  She didn't just say "oh by the way, Dumbledore is Gay, I'm being so open-minded guyz!!!11lolerz!"  At an event (talk, speech, whatever), she was doing Q & A, and someone asked if Dumbledore ever found love.  JK answered that Dumbledore was gay and had found love with that Wizard he battled and defeated (the one he was at first close friends with, and whom had beliefs similar to Voldemort).  So, it wasn't just publicity or crap like that.  She was just answering a question truthfully.

Granted, I must admit, a great deal of humor can come from this.  For example: http://booter-freak.deviantart.com/art/Albus-Iloveitinthebackdore-67935853
