J.K. Rowling previously informed the world that Dumbledore from Harry Potter is gay, and we should have known from the time he asked Snape to have all the third years whip up a batch of Back Door Lube in Potions class. OK, fine, that didn’t actually happen, but someone should really use that to write a fan fiction. Before any sticks in the mud could say, “Merlin’s beard, I’m ANGRY!” there was talk that the upcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel would simply allude to Dumbledore being into the D. The trailer later confirmed this. Ezra Miller, who plays Credence Barebone (teehee), says that ain’t true, and the movie makes it VERY evident Dumbledore spent many a-night at the Eagle in Diagon Alley.
Before you go expecting a scene where Dumby is heading to Gringotts to grab a few Galleons to pay for this month’s subscription to the warlock vertical on Sean Cody, take a few breaths. Ezra told Total Film Magazine (via IndieWire) that people need to stop “talking shit on Twitter” and see the movie for themselves. Ezra lauded J.K. for being a general badass for taking one of the most beloved characters in children’s literature and announcing he’s part of the LGBT community. I mean, I’d still say Humpty Dumpty was gay, too, but I digress. He also said that it’s evident Dumbledore is gay because of what he sees in that mirror that shows all your strongest desires:
“For me, personally, I find Dumbledore’s queerness extremely explicit in this film. I mean, all around. He sees Grindelwald, his young lover who’s the love of his life; he sees him in the Mirror of Erised. What does the Mirror of Erised show you? Nothing more than the most desperate desire of your heart. If that’s not explicitly gay, I don’t know what is.”
That’s cute…and BO-RING. Why not have him take a peek and see a naked Bulgarian Quidditch World Cup team?! Oh, that’s right. That’s what I see when I look into the mirror.
