J. K. Rowling announced on October 19 during a Q&A session after a reading before a full house at Carnegie Hall that beloved Wizard Albus Dumbledore is gay. Apparently Dumbledore “fell in love with the charming wizard Gellert Grindelwald but when Grindelwald turned out to be more interested in the dark arts than good, Dumbledore was terribly let down and went on to destroy his rival.” That love, she said, was Dumbledore’s “great tragedy.” The audience reportedly fell silent after Rowling’s admission, then erupted into applause.

Let me just say it plain… Good for her!
