On the Subject of Gay Dumbledore

The sexuality of Albus Dumbledore has been a subject of great speculation in the Harry Potter fandom since 2007. J.K. Rowling revealed that Hogwarts’ headmaster was gay after the publication of the final book, though the character seems to have been whisked back into the closet in his next canonical appearance in last year’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald. What to make of this “not explicitly gay” mess? Join host Ian Thomas Malone and special guest Colin George-Babb as they discuss the complicated relationships that gay fans often have with problematic elements of fandoms.
