Dumbledore's Secret!

In a special event for winners of a Scholastic Books contest, author J.K. Rowling outed Hogwarts Headmaster Albus Dumbledore! The question of Dumbledore’s love life came up in the Q&A session, and Rowling responded, “I always saw Dumbledore as gay.” She even mentioned that in a draft for the upcoming sixth Harry Potter movie, Dumbledore had a line reminiscing about a girl, which Rowling had to write a note to the director correcting the situation.

Read all about it in this Entertainment Weekly article. There are spoilers in the article (which they neglected to mention), so read just the first three or four paragraphs if, like me, you haven’t read the latest and last Harry Potter novel.
