Isn’t Dumbledore being gay”old news”?

I soo apologize for my absence-I’ve been sick & writing my book, more later…

Almost a month ago, I saw JK Rowling, read from Book 7 of Harry Potter series-The Deathly Hallows.  Talk about passion for her work-you could see the joy of talking to her fans-answering questions & signing books!

It was a sweepstakes & 2000 lucky winners were allowed to bring a guest to this exclusive event sponsored by Scholastic Publishing-they publish all of the Harry Potter books!  (my husband won a spot & took me!)

But, the media searched for a “scandal”-and they made one out of an innocent question on whether Dumbledore ever had a girlfriend & fell in love?  And (gasp!)  there wasn’t one…Rowling said she always saw Dumbledore as gay.  Stop the Presses! 🙂  For the full transcript-go to

This started a Media Frenzy!  CNN broadcast the ‘news” the next morning!  And just about every TV tabloid/News show followed suit.

Harry Potter Books have central themes of valuing inclusion, diversity & love…guess the media forgot this!

Why write about this “old news” now?  I just heard radio folks speculating & it’s still fodder for watercooler chit-chat…

Now, the debate is whether JKRowling should’ve told this or no…what do you think?  Do you care?

In Abundance!

  1. My brother recommended I might like this blog. He was totally right.

    This post actually made my day. You cann’t imagine just how much time I had spent
    for this information! Thanks!

  2. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
    text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility
    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great
    though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos

  3. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d
    prefer to shoot an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas to your blog you
    may be thinking about hearing. Either way,
    great blog and that i enjoy seeing it expand with time.
