Harry Potter and a Gay Dumbledore

But imagine my surprise when I read that I am not the only person wondering about Rowling’s motives and speculating that perhaps it was just to rile up a certain segment of the population. None other then Daniel Radcliffe himself, the actor who plays Harry Potter in the movies, said,
