J.Okay. Rowling has lengthy been open about the truth that Albus Dumbledore, the secretly-not-so-grandfatherly head wizard of her Harry Potter books (and extra dashing middle-aged hunk within the Fantastic Beasts prequels), was a principally on-the-DL gay. The creator will probably be leaving the detailed descriptions of his boudoir antics to the fan-fic-ers, however she positive enjoys periodically tossing them some, if you’ll, meat. To wit: She lately mentioned Dumbledore used to do it with unhealthy man Gellert Grindelwald.
Radio Times picked up on the tidbit, which might be discovered on the Blu-ray disc for the form of complicated Fantastic Beasts sequel The Crimes of Grindelwald. “Their relationship was incredibly intense. It was passionate, and it was a love relationship,” Rowling might be heard saying in the course of the “Distinctly Dumbledore” featurette. “But as happens in any relationship, gay or straight or whatever label we want to put on it, one never knows really what the other person is feeling. You can’t know, you can believe you know.”
“So I’m less interested in the sexual side — though I believe there is a sexual dimension to this relationship — than I am in the sense of the emotions they felt for each other, which ultimately is the most fascinating thing about all human relationship,” Rowling added.
