Dumbledore is Gay

Okay so Albus Dumbledore is a gay.

Big deal!

My question is: would any one have a problem with it? Not really... or at least I can say that for myself. Of course, I am going to reread the whole series now since I got this bit of information but that's merely out of curiosity than anything else. I'd have a totally different perspective of him now that I know a little more about him. In my opinion, he has been a very mysterious character from the beginning and this will help resolve a lot of questions about why things happened the way they did, or the way he wanted or didn't want.

And if you're wondering who's the lucky man, it's none other than Gellert Grindelwald!

thats a gimmick to sell more or make ppl re-read, i guess :) so shouldnt quote more as i am no fan of harry potter but wat i recollect immediately is of hindi movies adding a song after the movie becomes hit to add to its saleability ;) hehe

Chinmai, I think there's more to it than just a gimmick. The author had said that there were a lot of details of the story that were not part of the seven books and intended to share them later. I am guessing this bit is part of that. I do see a lot of angry and upset readers because of this info and I don't really understand their opposition of this matter.
