Dumbledore is gay!

Just in case any of you Harry Potter fans had not heard, Albus Dumbledore is, in fact, gay

J.K. Rowling has outed one of the main
characters of her best-selling Harry Potter series, telling
fans in New York that the wizard Albus Dumbledore, head of
Hogwarts school, is gay. Speaking at Carnegie Hall on Friday night in her first U.S.
tour in seven years, Rowling confirmed what some fans had
always suspected — that she “always thought Dumbledore was
gay,”

This article in Salon provides an intersting analysis of all the hints at the matter in book 7.  It is also an interesting essay on JK Rowlings unwillingness to let her characters go now that the novel is done.
