It’s 10 years since JK Rowling revealed that Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore was gay in a Q&A with fans.
Some LGBT fans were upset that JK Rowling didn’t mention in any of the books that Dumbledore was gay and saw it as an “Afterthought”.
“One has to have hope that she will use this opportunity to show us the side of Dumbledore we could never have seen when he was a much older man who had long before been tragically let down by the man he loved,” she writes.
“We have the chance to witness, in real time, a Dumbledore who is young and vivacious and who, hopefully, both acknowledges his sexuality and gives us a chance to see a well-rounded gay character in a mainstream blockbuster.”
Speaking last year about the second Fantastic Beasts movie, Rowling said we will see Dumbledore as a younger and “Quite troubled man”.
“Chances on Young Dumbledore appearing even remotely gay in a major studio tentpole? I’ll take 0%…”she tweeted.
